School & Community Programs

girl_smA low-cost way to engage, inspire
and educate your entire student body 

The African American Heritage Museum of Southern New Jersey is committed to bringing its resources directly to the community. At the heart of this effort is the TRAVELING MUSEUM, an entertaining and interactive experience with curricula specially tailored to schools and non-profit organizations.

Often accompanied by AAHMSNJ founder, the irrepressible Mr. Ralph Hunter, the TRAVELING MUSEUM has been expanded for 2017 to include three richly visual and informative presentations to choose from so that your school or community group will receive an experience that will leave a lasting impression.

Student and faculty can participate in the presentation

Our presentations offer a participatory learning program that provides students with the opportunity to serve as docents and guide their classmates through the exhibits. This is a uniquely interactive and successful format that provides these Student Docents with a great research and speaking opportunity.

The space required along with supporting materials such as tables and easels vary depending on the presentation. On the day of the program we need volunteers to assist in unloading and loading.

An honorarium is requested for presenting the program.
