Every Wednesday night SFPS Adelante hosts the Juntos Project, serving a hot meal to homeless families and providing parent education classes on topics such as family communication and family literacy. The Santa Fe Community Educators Network (SF CEN) partners with Adelante to host fun enrichment program for the kids.
AmeriCorps VISTA Adria, who supports SF CEN, attended the Juntos Project this November. SF CEN members Wise Fool New Mexico and the Georgia O’Keefe Museum offered creative and athletic fun at their Wednesday night Juntos Project program.
Liz Brindley and Sarah Zurick of Georgia O’Keefe instructed the children on how to make Whirl-a-Gigs with paper and markers. The kids produced colorful designs and cut them into swirly shapes.
Alishiya Kapoor of Wise Fool New Mexico offered instruction in hula-hooping, plate spinning on sticks, and juggling.
