Children and teens participating in Parent to Parent’s one2one program were invited to bring hobbies, collections or a special talent to showcase or share with their friends and families.
The response was fantastic!
Eight participants brought their collections to share including; Legos, wrestling figurines, giraffes, transformers and “Cars” from the motion picture. Three others shared their talent; karate skills, joke telling and balloon tying. The night ended with a special choreographed finale dance to “Moves Like Jagger.” The crowd of family, friends, Children’s Village staff and YVCC students (studying special education and inclusion) erupted in applause!
The night was a hit in part to the 15 one2one program mentors who volunteered to support and encourage the kids. Also, Isamar Gutierrez, a Toppenish High School Senior, worked closely with staff to fulfill her senior project.
