Your support will help us to develop new programs for schoolchildren and a transportation fund for schools in need. For the last year, the park has been working with teachers to develop a pilot training program. Our goal is to engage more school groups in visiting and learning.
The Visitor Center offers new opportunities for teachers to bring children of all ages to learn about the contributions made by grandparents and great-grandparents during the WWII Home Front era. Children also learn important stories about innovation and social changes that we now take for granted today. On Rosie Fridays, four of the original Rosies, who worked in a variety of wartime jobs, visit with children and other visitors to talk about what it was like when women entered the workforce in startling new ways and at a time when women’s jobs were highly restricted.
