Team D-LIGHTT (Diversity Leaders Initiative Group Helping Teach Tolerance) partnered with the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry for its project since teaching children tolerance must begin at an early age and should include exposing them to a diverse range of people, ideas and experiences. The Museum provides a place for children to interact in an educational and enriching environment that fosters tolerance, understanding and appreciation for all types of people regardless of race, culture, age, class, gender, physical ability or other differences.

The project focuses on providing access to the Children’s Museum to an expanded and more diverse range of children and their families. The team placed a special emphasis on the Museum’s newest program, “Sunday Super Stars,” which provides an opportunity for children with special needs and their families to explore the museum at their own pace, without crowds and at no cost.


In addition, the project includes elements to help the Children’s Museum of the Lowcountry advance its mission, increase community awareness, enrich programs, and enhance services, ultimately allowing the museum to better serve the community’s diverse population of children.
