Today, I got to meet Kevin Jonas of The Jonas Brothers fame. The funny thing is that this meeting wasn't through my job at Disney, but through Lunchables, which has partnered with the pop-star to help deserving kids across the country go on field trips with the launch of the program, “Field Trips for All.”
To help kick-off the “Field Trips for All” program, Kevin Jonas accompanied a group of lucky elementary school students to the Natural History Museum of Los Angeles as they learned about the ocean and its inhabitants.
Amidst the screams of the children, here is Kevin's welcome speech to the crowd:
Kevin also shared about his favorite field trip growing up in New Jersey, “I remember my first field trip to Liberty Science Center. It was one of the best parts of going to school – being with friends, learning about new things and having fun! I’m excited to work with the Lunchables team to help kick-off the 'Field Trips for All' program, and help give deserving kids a chance to discover new things and get inspired by a great experience.”
According to The American Association of School Administrators, it’s estimated that over the course of the current school year, the number of school districts eliminating field trips will increase by 56%. That’s more than 30,000 schools. Anyone can nominate a classroom to win a free field trip on Lunchables.com through June 1st. Fifty classrooms will be chosen in total.
Oh and check out this video about the program where they surprise kids during their field trip. And for any Kevin Jonas fans reading, here are some more photos that I snapped:
