This field trip is always a unique experience for my class. It is age-appropriate, interactive, and an enjoyable day for students & chaperones. Thank you!

COMMITTED TO COMMUNITY
The Frick is committed to our community and continually seeks opportunities to collaborate with other organizations to develop and provide programs that serve diverse populations, groups, cultures, and geographical areas within our region.
The Frick has offered scholarship programs and free busing to some 14,000 students at schools and other organizations in our neighboring communities over the past 15 years. Summertime Community Day Camp programs give children from a variety of social service organizations the chance to explore our collections and create art reflecting their experiences. The Afterschool program reaches students from Wilkinsburg, Homewood and other neighborhoods through weekly learning and creative activities, both at the Frick and at their sites. The literacy-based program, School to Museum, mixes a variety of art and writing activities during monthly student visits to our site, most recently serving Pittsburgh Colfax. Second grade students from the same school also participated in The Learning Tree, combining math and science with art and writing as they explored the trees and habitats on seasonal visits to the Frick grounds.
Partnering organizations in the 2009—2010 school year included: YWCA Homewood, Gwen’s Girls, Boys & Girls Club of Wilkinsburg, Community Empowerment Association, Salvation Army Family Caring Center, East End Cooperative Ministry, and others.
