Heritage in Schools Program

Encouraging students and teachers to engage with Vancouver's diverse heritage places, and contribute to meaningful discussions around their histories and future legacies. 

Vancouver Heritage Foundation’s Heritage in Schools Program aims to increase students’ and educators’ awareness and knowledge of local heritage places and history by providing learning opportunities inside and outside the classroom. We do this by collaborating with educators and students to develop accessible resources and self-directed inquiry-based projects, and through support of Vancouver Heritage Fairs.

The program includes our Heritage Study Guide that is full of helpful resources for teaching about local heritage, our popular Field Trip Grants, and Professional Development support for educators.

By donating to this program you support field trip or classroom book grants, professional development days, and promote place-based heritage education in Vancouver public schools.
