The first day of school for students at PFFS-Downtown and PFFS-University is not until August 6th. We know you are all excited to start the new school year (we are too) but we want to encourage you to enjoy what is left of summer. Here’s an idea: Curling up with a really good book is always enjoyable. Get to your neighborhood public library, checkout a stack of possibilities, and hunker down for the remainder of the summer. You will not regret it.
There are also some structured group activities during the rest of July. Check them out:
Speaking of utilizing the library, we had shared in an earlier post that the Pima County Public Library was awarded a $70,000 grant from the Arizona State Library, Archives and Public Records to create more youth media programming for teens. Checkout the cool classes and workshops being offered in the 101 teen space at the Joel D Valdez Library during the rest of July.
On July 13-24, the Nonviolence Legacy Project is running a two-week Advanced Youth Nonviolence and Empowerment Institute and are still seeking youth, ages 14-20, who represent a diversity of cultural and ethnic identities, to participate in the program. Our very own Lori LeChien will be facilitating part of the workshop!!!! For more information see the Institute flyer and/or download the Institute application.
ZUZI! (our longtime partner at the Historic Y) has one summer camp left for your young dancers. July 20-24 is ZUZI!’s second Move It! Dance Camp of 2015 and as of yesterday they had just 4 spots left! Call them at 520-629-0237 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up.
Last but not least, StartUp Tucson will be holding its STEM camp for middle and high schoolers on July 27-31 (also shared in an earlier post). This week-long camp will feature technology demonstrations and guest speakers from Tucson Entrepreneurs and the University of Arizona. Attendees will learn the same tools entrepreneurs use including how to identify problems, validate solutions, evaluate financial feasibility, and pitch ideas. They are accepting applications and they still have partial scholarships available. You can find more information and register at Startup STEM Camp or if you have questions, you can contact email@example.com.
