Kids on the Block Puppeteers 

Volunteers are trained to use a variety of puppets with and without disabilities to perform scripted shows for children. Volunteers will learn the different scripts and understand the issues present for disabled populations. Volunteers must have physical stamina to operate the puppets, public speaking/acting skills, solid English communication skills and ability to work closely with others. Volunteering as a puppeteer is an excellent opportunity for those interested in counseling and therapy, teaching, theatre and the special needs population.
