Children’s Village is excited to be the recipient of a $50,000 grant from Boeing Global Engagement!  This grant will enhance our efforts to promote S.T.E.M. learning for students, families, and educators.

The award will support teachers as they provide hands-on learning that encourages creative play, exploration, and discovery. Children’s Village’s parent workshops will also feature S.T.E.M. activities, including cooking and games, to engage the whole family and extend learning outside of the school day.  Children’s Village will also continue its partnership with The Franklin Institute to provide family-friendly S.T.E.M. activities.  Equally as significant, Children’s Village will boost S.T.E.M. curriculum development and provide new professional workshops for educators.

“We are honored that Boeing Global Engagement recognizes that the toddler, preschool, and school-age students in our classrooms today are the innovators of tomorrow.  Boeing is ensuring we impact S.T.E.M. learning on multiple levels, including for children, their families, and their teachers,” said Mary Graham, Executive Director, Children’s Village.

“At Boeing, we truly believe that opportunities in education and exposure to career development can change the trajectory of an individual’s life and the life of those around them in profound ways,” said Michele Hengey, Boeing community investor. “We are confident that we will see an impact from the work accomplished by Children’s Village for years to come.”
