Thursday, February 18
Jacobs Family Gallery
Please join Congressman Barney Frank and Mayor Scott W. Lang, along with other legislators, local officials, and the New Bedford Whaling Museum’s Board of Trustees to celebrate the launch of a new Youth Internship and Apprenticeship Program at the New Bedford Whaling Museum. This program of paid apprenticeships will provide a unique opportunity for local youth to learn a variety of museum skills and expand their scholastic horizons throughout the academic year and summer months.
Join us in congratulating the first group of Whaling Museum Apprentices and recognizing the program’s generous funders: The U.S. Department of Education’s Office of Innovation and Improvement/Education through Cultural and Historical Organizations (ECHO), the Jessie Ball duPont Fund, The Howard Bayne Fund, The Women’s Fund of the Community Foundation of Southeastern Massachusetts, and Bank of America.
A light reception will follow the event.
