Kids on the Block
Through puppetry, the JLS educates area elementary school children on social issues. Kids on the Block teaches children how to accept differences in others and themselves as well as make healthier life choices. The puppets discuss topics such as bullying and physical challenges in a clear, non-threatening manner and allow the students to express their feelings and concerns to the puppets during the question and answer session that follows each skit. The League has been active with Kids on the Block for over a decade.
