Partner with Us

We support educators in increasing student achievement by connecting the historical facts of the Underground Railroad and the struggle from slavery to freedom to modern day slavery. We strive to understand your needs based on data collection and analysis, and ultimately assist in creating strategies to increase student achievement.

Research has proven that children who visit a museum at a young age achieve higher scores in reading, math and science. In addition, students are able to connect historical events to their lives today. The National Underground Railroad Freedom Center is a place your students will remember because we make history come alive. Contact us to meet and discuss how we can support your efforts in the classroom.
