The NLM offers K–12 educational tours and extended Museum Learning Experiences both at our historic building in the heart of Philadelphia and on-site for schools unable to visit. All programs are aligned with PA, NJ, and national Common Core standards in English Language Arts and Social Studies. We invite sponsorships of our education programs to cover admission costs and bussing for Title 1 public schools.
Thank you to our current tour and outreach sponsors whose philanthropic contributions are at work in the Philadelphia community:

The NLM’s signature outreach initiative is a yearlong program operating inside Philadelphia-area Title 1 schools for underserved students in grades 4-8. Using the NLM’s proprietary curriculum, our outreach educators work side-by-side with students and teachers facilitating YHOP’s 10-module sequence. Students form a Young Heroes Club, where members identify a real-life ‘liberty issue’ in their school or neighborhood and then cooperatively work together to solve the problem. As students progress through the school year, they learn leadership, responsibility, empathy, and the 21st-century skills empirically linked to academic and personal success.
We invite individual school sponsorships, as well as gifts to the YHOP program, to help fund its operations. Sponsors visit our YHOP schools, get regular updates on the students’ progress, and are encouraged to observe the students’ community action project.
Thank you to our current YHOP sponsors whose philanthropic contributions are at work in Philadelphia schools:

The NLM’s annual Glass Auction & Gala is our signature fundraiser and the premier glass auction in the region. The proceeds raised from this event directly impact our character and civic education programs for underserved youth. Sponsors receive substantial marketing benefits including exclusive exposure to and recognition among a prestigious audience of Delaware Valley CEOs, philanthropists, and art collectors. Become a sponsor today.
The NLM has completed its Master Planning for phased interactive enhancements to its core galleries that will take place from 2016-2019. These improvements will transform the way you see glass and art. Please contact Peggy Sweeney at email@example.com, VP of Institutional Advancement, to discuss the range of meaningful exhibit and gallery naming opportunities.
At the end of each school year, the NLM's Young Heroes Outreach Program, which brings the Museum’s civic leadership curriculum directly into area schools, holds a grand celebration to showcase the Social Action Projects created by all of the participating schools. This year the celebration was a VIRTUAL event and their projects are available for viewing on this website!
