Discovery Guild

Over the years, Discovery Center has strived to be a hub for families — not only inspiring a future generation of leaders in STEAM careers, but also welcoming and celebrating all children and possibilities. At a time when so many in our country have experienced injustice and disparity, the Discovery Center staff and other community leaders have united to bridge the gap and be a resource for families. From the discussions among our alliance was born the Discovery Guild, and we invite you to join us in this effort today!

The Discovery Guild is a network for families, caregivers, and community leaders to connect and engage within the vision of Discovery Center. The members of the Discovery Guild embrace this vision: to build a community with the courage to ask thoughtful questions, the drive to find creative solutions, and the confidence to implement positive changes.

The Discovery Guild strengthens ties between communities who gather and learn at Discovery Center, provides opportunities to grow for all ages, and builds the foundations to propel curious minds to fuel the future. Activities also include social networking and fundraising opportunities to maintain Discovery Center as a STEAM hub for every child in his or her own experience. Our fundraising efforts will provide free memberships for underserved families in Rutherford County. Because of YOU, every family will be able to learn and explore while making lasting memories together.

We hope you will join the Discovery Guild and help us find and bridge the gaps within the communities served by Discovery Center. For questions, please contact Lindsey Jennings at 615-918-9586 or
