Boston Children’s Museum Family Ambassador Program sponsored by the Yawkey Foundation
Family Ambassadors are the Museum’s neighborhood-based representatives. Family Ambassadors receive Boston Children’s Museum memberships to bring guest families from their own cities and neighborhoods on visits to the Museum. Traditionally, Family Ambassadors have represented neighborhoods from within Boston and through the support of the Yawkey Foundation, this program will extend to families in Gateway cities.
