School Programs

FRIENDS works hard to provide meaningful and engaging content that supports the Bahamian school curriculum. While much of our programs are geared towards science, the information has relevance and application to other topics such as math, English language, creative writing, and geography. We encourage teachers to reach out to FRIENDS as a resource, and we'd be happy to visit your classroom or take you and your students on a field trip in Abaco's environment. Scroll down for more information on the programs that we are offering currently. *Please note that offerings are limited based on COVID-19 restrictions. Virtual opportunities are available!
