School & Community Groups

The Westchester Italian Cultural Center’s
school and community group visits are
designed in collaboration with teachers, community
organizers, students and families to create an
active learning environment. Our goal is to engage
all participants in meaningful experiences with
Italian art and culture. Opportunities are available
for school, community, and non-profit groups of all
ages.
School Groups: Through guided discussions, our
educators encourage students to apply critical
thinking skills and gain an appreciation for the fine
arts, as well as the Italian culture and traditions.
Students learn to look carefully at works of art and
other examples of Italian culture and are given the
opportunity to articulate their thoughts and
opinions.
The Cultural Center is open during regular
business hours, Monday through Friday from
9:00am to 5:00pm; school and community groups
by appointment only Monday through Friday
10:00am to 2:00pm.
Please note: On occasion we may record group
activities in photographs or on video. We reserve
the right to display these images on our website
and in other media to promote our mission and/or
to advertise our programs.

Hear What These Teachers Have to Say…

“The program was much more than we originally intended.  The pizza making was of course great fun, delicious and very interesting to our students but the time spent discussing the ancient Roman artifacts was a tremendous gift.”

-Marla G.

“For the past 10 years, I have been taking my 8th-grade Italian students to the Westchester Italian Cultural Center to participate in 2 workshops, “Presepio Napolitano” and “Pasta or Pizza Making”. Taking this trip has not only been great for my students to learn more about the Italian language and culture they are studying, but also experience it! The staff is reliable, knowledgeable, accessible, kind, and accommodating. For 10 years, the staff has helped me to enrich my students and I look very forward to continuing our annual tradition with them!”
