Tell me about your group.
We work out of Columbus Recreation and Parks Department at Douglas Recreation Center. It is called Modeling with a Message.
It seemed like the message today was based on education. Is that the main message or do you pick a different message each time you perform?
We pick a different message each time we perform. We want to talk about breast cancer, bullying, black history, etc. Our children write their own message or they look up and recite messages to share with the community.
How does a young person or a volunteer become involved?
Show up to Douglas Recreation Center on Wednesday evenings at 6:00pm.
We work with children to build up their confidence and self esteem.
What is the age for participants?
6 to adult.
We also work with Black Nativity. I am the children’s director for that performance. We start working with the children in September.
