Grant Funded Field Trips for San Diego Schools


Bring your students to the Museum of Tolerance.

Thanks to generous support from the Leichtag Foundation, the MOT can award free tickets to San Diego schools during the 2014-2015 school year. Recommended for ages 12 and above, the 3 hour tour includes the Holocaust Exhibit which is a sound-and-light guided, seventy minute dramatic presentation that covers the period from the 1920s to 1945. Students are led back in time to become witnesses to events in Nazi-dominated Europe during World War II. Every student receives a photo passport card with the story of a child whose life was changed by the events of the Holocaust. Groups also experience interactive exhibits in the Tolerancenter such as the POV Diner and Millennium Machine which expose the dynamics of prejudice and discrimination historically and today. Major themes throughout the tour include the power of words and the role of the bystander.

Supporting the experience is a Teacher’s Guide with standards-aligned lessons and information.

If you are from the San Diego area we invite you to apply for tickets using an application below. Please note the following:

  • Priority is given to low-income schools and programs for at-risk and first generation college bound students.
  • Priority is given to schools that can visit the Museum before the end of December 2014 (after that is the museum’s busiest season and tickets may not be available)
  • Grant funded programs are available on a first come, first served basis.
  • Assistance with buses is very limited this year and requires a separate application and confirmation process (form B). To qualify, a minimum group size of 45 people must be reserved.  

Please fill out only ONE of the following forms.

 

A. IF YOU ARE APPLYING FOR TICKETS ONLY AND WILL PAY FOR YOUR OWN BUS, CLICK HERE.

B. IF YOU ARE APPLYING FOR BOTH TICKETS AND A BUS, CLICK HERE.
There has been tremendous interest in bus scholarships this year and all bus funds have been allocated.

We look forward to seeing you!
