This Friday December 13th the GOYA Project plans to throw a holiday party for the children of Youth Empowerment Services (YES), an after school program for the children of New Brunswick, and we need volunteers!
WHEN: Friday December 13th 2013
TIME: 4:30-5:30pm (please be on time as the event only lasts an hour!)
WHERE: Youth Empowerment Services, 270 George St New Brunswick, NJ (One block after Rockoff Hall)
WHAT WE NEED: Activities for the children vary, so we need people for a few different things.
Gift Wrappers: We are going to be gift wrapping books for the children to take home for themselves and to give as gifts for friends and neighbors in their community, so we need volunteers who can neatly wrap books.
Face Painting: One of the activities we wish to do is face painting, so we need a volunteer who can paint simple designs on the children’s faces.
Arts&Crafts: We’re going to have a coloring/craft station for the kids to design simple Christmas ornaments and Christmas cards to take home and hang on their tree or in their window. Volunteers are needed to assist the children in doing this.
Henna tattoos: This inclusion of this activity at the event depends on if any of our volunteers know how to do simple henna designs. If so, please inform us as soon as possible!
Cultural Holiday Celebrations (presentation): To make this event educational as well as fun, we wish to include a short (15 minute) interactive presentation on holiday celebrations from different cultures (Christmas, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa). For this activity volunteers are needed to present and engage the audience using visual aids.
Before the event all volunteers and members of GOYA who wish to participate need to meet up for an hour or two Monday Dec 9th at 8pm at Alexander Library (College Ave) AND Thursday Dec 12th to go over individual responsibilities. All those interested please send an email to Elsa at firstname.lastname@example.org with your phone number/contact info at your earliest convenience.
