Villa West Kids Summer Program

The Villa West Apts. Kids Summer Program is looking for 3 or 4 boys and/or girls to volunteer with kids ranging from 2 through 6th grade.  You will be expected to supervise painting projects, games, arts and crafts, planting projects and the like.  No experience is necessary.  The most kids they have is 20 at a time and they could really use some students to help with the boys and the boy games.  

 

The Villa West Apts. Kids Summer Program was started to keep our kids busy during the summer, so we wouldn't have so much innocent vandalism for lack of things to do.  But it has developed to much more than that.  They are a little community within a community so to speak.  They aim to cultivate a harmonious attitude between households and they are starting with the kids.

 

They advocate reading and school type activities to keep the kids engaged in learning throughout the summer.  They also play Bingo, Yahtzee and other games requiring both numbers and letters, because of the vast age ranges.  They also play tag and other energetic games when the energy level is too high for sit down activities. 

 

If this sounds like something you would be interested in doing, please contact Kathleen Baron at 949-646-9507 or 949-887-1960.  You can also email her at ktbaron@1gardner.com   The program would start the 2nd week of July, Tuesday thru Friday, 1:30pm to 3:30pm.
