Classroom Outreach

Outreach Education Can’t come to one of our museums? The Jamestown-Yorktown Foundation can bring one of our inquiry-based, educational programs to your classroom. During each program, students will examine reproduction artifacts and primary sources, allowing them to learn through historical analysis and critical thinking. Click on the programs listed below for specific information about each.

The hour-long outreach programs support the Virginia Standards of Learning and you can find related teaching resources in our Learning Center to supplement the lesson. Programs are designed for an average class size and last one hour. A minimum of three classes are required to book outreach.

We are currently booking outreach and field trip programs with the understanding that situations may change on either end based on Coronavirus numbers across the state and country. If a school or the Foundation need to cancel, we can either reschedule or work to provide you with a virtual program.

Average price is $1.85 per student.

To book an outreach program, contact Reservations at group.reservations@jyf.virginia.gov, call (757) 253-4939 or (888) 868-7593 toll-free, or fax (757) 253-4997.

Free, donor-funded opportunities are available for Title I schools. Limited funding is available and teachers are encouraged to secure their session now. To see if your school qualifies, contact annemarie.baker@jyf.virginia.gov.

Donor-funded programming made available through a generous donation from the Charles S. & Millicent P. Brown Family Foundation, the Huston Foundation and Mrs. Carolyn T. Condon.

Classroom outreach programs are only available in Virginia. If you’re outside Virginia or visitors are not allowed in your school this year, you can still experience our inquiry-based programs through our Distance Learning offerings.
