UCC visit – Thursday June 23rd 11am-Noon
New as of 5pm on June 22nd
A better space opened up for us and it works so much better, but requires some relocating.We will be meeting and conducting our visit at Bruce Guadalupe Middle School….the building north of United Community Center.920 S 9th StreetEnter the main door and we’ll meet there.For the first part of our visit the students will be in an auditorium.You (pet therapy teams) and your volunteers: Lisa, Anne, Katie and Diane will be a short distance away in the gym.Our contact Luz will have 10 signs with numerals one thru 10 (the number of teams) placed around the perimeter of the gym in a circle.After the presentation about pet therapy and the benefit, the students will count off by 10, then make their way to the gym and go to their respective number. After 5 minutes the teams will move clockwise one spot…students stay put. We will try to make it around one full circle, but that’s a lofty goal.Parking Lot option.There is a parking lot just north of the school.The entrance to the lot is on the south side of National Avenue, east of 9th Street…just before the overhead freeway.There is a Park n Ride green sign….enter the lot…continue straight…cross the alley (you’re heading south) and enter the next parking lot.There is an exit on the southwest corner.You’ll cross the street and the school will be on your left side.
This is part of a summer program for raising 9th graders to prepare them for the transition into high school. One topic that is important that students will learn this summer is mindfulness and wellness practices.
This first segment of our visit will be talking about pet therapy and the benefits.
The last segment is breaking the group into smaller groups and meeting the pet therapy teams.
Extra non-pet therapy teams volunteers are greatly appreciated.
