JRC Gives Back - March 2022

Posted by Aelea Semenowich on

For March 2022, JRC is Giving Back to the Children's Museum Free2Play Access Program!
 
The Children’s Museum is committed to ensuring that children and their families, regardless of their financial circumstances, can participate in the life-enriching, creative experiences they offer. To this end, the Free2Play Access Program was created, and it has been an important component of the Children’s Museum since they first opened our doors to the community over thirty years ago.
 
The Free2Play Access Program brings under-supported children to the Children’s Museum for school visits, day camps, special events, and after-school clubs FREE OF CHARGE! The program is open to qualifying Manitoba schools, registered day cares, and select social service organizations.
 
The Free2Play Access Program is composed of several different services and events, including:
School Programs & Explorations (with rural Manitoba transportation subsidies)
The Children’s Museum offers one free visit per year to every class in under-supported Manitoba schools, registered day cares, and select social service organizations on a first-come, first served basis. Recognizing the costs of transportation for rural schools coming to Winnipeg, a transportation subsidy for Manitoba schools in rural communities 40 km or further from Winnipeg may also be available through this program.
After-School STEAM Clubs
Open to students in Grades 3 to 5 in under-supported Winnipeg schools, the Children’s Museum’s After-School Clubs are free programs that run in five-week sessions five times throughout the year. With the guided support of guest instructors, their After-School Clubs teach kids new skills and provide them with fun and exciting ways to express their creativity. After-School Club participants are also provided with free family passes to ensure that the student and his/her family are able to continue enjoying the Children’s Museum long after the After-School Club experience is complete.
Special Events
At least 10% of tickets to special museum events are provided to children in the Free2Play Access Program and their families to attend free of charge.
Museum Passes & Memberships
The Children’s Museum routinely donates free daily admission passes and annual memberships to partner organizations for distribution to their clients in an effort to promote positive family relationships.
Day Camps
The Children’s Museum provides over 25 children a year a week-long experience in one of the museum’s Day Camps free of charge through Free2Play Access Program Day Camp Fee Subsidies.
 
Throughout the month of March, a portion of cupcake sales will be donated to Free2Play Access Program. Purchase your cupcakes at our shops at Academy, Island Lakes or The Forks or through SkipTheDishes and know you're helping kids access life-enriching, creative experiences.
