Dear Community Members:
Please join us as we continue to offer opportunities in cultural and performing arts, lifelong learning, and travel during the 2019-2020 school year. Whether you take classes, attend events, or had a child participate in our first-ever Discovery Youth Camps this past summer, we want to continue to offer new and innovative programming to meet the needs of the communities we serve.
Future Ready Parent Series
The Future Ready Parent Series is back and kicking off the series is Detective Rich Wistocki, a national child crime specialist, who will present on the topic, Cyber Security and Your Teen. This event will take place on September 24. On December 4, we have invited Michele Borba, bestselling author, who will speak on teaching empathy to the “selfie generation.” She will offer a nine-step program to help parents cultivate empathy in children, from birth to young adults.
Decision 2020, our series on the upcoming presidential election, will explore the topics and themes of the current political landscape. We will host political journalists and experts at a pre-election panel discussion on the 2020 U.S. presidential candidates.
