Education programs at the Anacostia Community Museum are multidisciplinary in their design and are developed to engage diverse audiences including families, adults, young audiences, students, and others in the education community such as teachers and administrators. Anyone interested in learning about the museum, its collections, and its mission will find a variety of programs to assist, educate, and entertain. Lectures, films, panel discussions, workshops, gallery tours, symposia, performances, and volunteer opportunities are just some of the programs the education department develops to help make the visitor experience meaningful and fulfilling.

On average the education department offers between 12 and 15 programs monthly. While most of these relate directly to current exhibitions, some programs engage specific audiences in recognition of the community's cultural diversity. Other programs might relate to national celebrations such as National Poetry Month, Jazz Appreciation Month, or Kwanzaa. Other programs, like our community forums, focus on issues with broad regional, national, or international resonance, and are developed in collaboration with local partners. The museum also offers an array of educational resources include including digital online exhibitions, family guides, program transcriptions, video, podcast and classroom curricula.
