Kansas City is the pioneer model of a Civic Learning Collaborative, bringing museums and schools together to deliver the kind of learning that will help young people thrive as citizens and participants in their community.
As a city, we already have vibrant communities of learning for STEAM. We believe that while this is good, we need to go deeper. Therefore, it is our goal to create a complementary ecosystem of institutions that focus on developing young people as civic participants and community members.
It is exciting to be on the cutting edge of innovative museum programming during these unique challenges of connecting with our local community”
In all of my 39 years of working in Museums, this Collaborative is the most effective and inspiring thing I have ever seen”
Museums capture and celebrate the best accomplishments of humankind now, more than ever, it is important that we celebrate those amazing feats together.”
