Build your Toolkit at the Design Challenge & Parmelee Fair Fun!

Early Childhood Fair at Parmelee
Our Early Head Start program has had a busy spring! They put on a second Health & Resource Fair in South L.A, this time at Parmelee Elementary. We had many partner agencies and volunteers again providing activities and services, including dental screenings from UCLA School of Dentistry, for over 300 participants!  Many thanks to Parmelee administrators, staff, and parent volunteers for their partnership in making this event a success! 
Build a Toolkit at the Design Challenge
Step into a student’s shoes with project-based learning! This year, the Design Challenge will feature the opportunity for teams of business and community leaders to build a toolkit for success for students on the path towards college, career, and life. Be a team member and interact with creative partners using a glue gun and a box of materials from Trash4Teaching. Join the fun!
