Group Match Activities
Just a Reminder
Since BBBSNN activities are the result of Agency community partnerships and/or grant funding for our matches, guests are not permitted to attend.
Legendary Lands: Creative Writing Workshop
Sun, March 3, 2-3:30 PM, Multi-purpose Room (downstairs), 1300 Foster Dr, Reno 89509
Matches are invited to attend a hands-on, creative writing workshop during which Littles will be the explorers and writers discovering a new “Legendary Land.” Littles will be encouraged to be as serious, silly, and imaginative as they wish in documenting their creation in a “Passport” notebook. Matches will travel through multiple stations meant to inspire and engage through various activities. The final project will be translated into a travel poster by a local artist and displayed in a gallery show during Artown! The event will be fun and celebratory (so don’t let your Littles say they don’t like writing!) and is suitable for all ages and abilities. This is a wonderful opportunity for those Littles needing some extra confidence and practice with their literacy skills, or for anyone who wants to see their work on display. Please RSVP ASAP, if you haven’t already!
