School Tours Information

“The tour really helped solidify for our kids the importance of philanthropy and acting as a global citizen.” 
– Teacher, 
Cleveland High School

Educators can schedule free 60 to 90-minute interactive tours for students throughout the school year. Each tour includes a guided segment — led by trained educators — as well as time for students to explore the Discovery Center on their own.

School tours can be adjusted and customized to align with the group’s grade level and educational goals. We offer themed tours, such as “My Community,” which highlights everyday opportunities for young people to give back.
