SHAW COMMUNITY

OUR FIRST HYBRID FESTIVAL

VR DISTANCE LEARNING

Our First Hybrid Harvest Festival!

The Youth had lots of fun, both #virtual and in-person (Socially Distanced)!

We look forward to hosting more #Hybrid community events!
 

We have been working hard to continue engagement with the community through Virtual and hybrid events and educational programs.

 

Your generous donations support our virtual programs which empower youth to explore socially responsive, artistic, and community-oriented concepts and topics through our evidence-based learning practices.
