The Kids on the Block
The Kids on the Block is an outreach educational puppet program where Assistance League members become puppeteers and bring performances regarding social issues to the elementary schools in Placer County. The three puppet topics offered to the schools are: Bullying and School Safety, Learning Differences, and Vehicle Safety. There are several scripts in each subject area that accommodate different grade levels. The Kids on the Block program includes puppeteers, emcees, correspondence-mailings, schedulers, and a design team for creating stage props and costumes.
