A Kids on the Block performance is a fun and educational experience. The “Kids” vividly and effectively model relationships between students with and without disabilities through frank and often humorous communication of facts and feelings between the puppet characters and the audience.
The Kids on the Block also helps students feel more positive about themselves, accept individual differences, and learn valuable interpersonal skills.
Each Kids on the Block program is thoroughly researched and field-tested before it becomes available for performance in school districts, community service organizations, and special interest groups. All performances are free of charge and strictly adhere to scripts that were developed by The Kids on the Block, Inc. headquarters in collaboration with nationally-recognized organizations and numerous experts.
Committed Assistance League volunteers have learned to use the entertaining medium of puppetry to present programs for students in grades 2–3. Each performance includes scheduled question and answer periods when students interact directly with the puppet characters.
