teen volunteers

APE threw a Chirstmas party for kids, and it went great!

The Aldine Project Experience (our artistic teen volunteers) planned out a full children's program for this party. They researched children's crafts online. Then our volunteers tried the crafts out to decide which were the best based on kid's abilities, and how fun they were. They planned out a holiday snack menu (hot chocolate, chocolate chip cookies, candy canes, and even a healthy option of apple slices with peanut butter), and ordered the activities (crafts, then snacks, then a holiday movie).

APE volunteers are throwing a Christmas Party for kids!

After a grueling couple of months making Thirst For Hunger APE's teen volunteers could have done any number of things this winter. (I for one suggested quiet writing sessions, unsupervised free arts and crafts blocks of time, or you know long nap times...) But the teens at APE had other ideas, they wanted to throw a Christmas Party for the children of the Aldine Library.

We have put the time in. We tried out a number of holiday crafts and chose the best ones. We have put together a menu of our favorite holiday treats. And even chose a great kid's holiday film!

We are very excited to give the children of Aldine this present for Christmas! Come out and join the fun and celebration, Tuesday the 17th at 4pm in the meeting room.

APE's Thirst For Hunger Premieres Friday

Thirst For Hunger PromoFor months now APE has been working on a Hunger Games parody video we have entitled Thirst For Hunger. Our teen volunteers wrote the script in perfect format, made storyboards before we shot our scenes, acted superbly in, and filmed this epic little video. And now, this Friday, APE invites you to come watch the world premiere with us! 5pm in the meeting room, come watch the funny- er magic? Er funny magic?

Or if you cannot make it in person, please join us here on the blog, where we will post the video at the same time for our digital premiere.

Either way we're excited to have you join us Friday at 5pm for the funny magic.
