Sense of WonderSense of Wonder

The purpose of our program is to nurture the discovery and appreciation of our beautiful world – environmental and ethnic diversity – to become closer to it and learn how to love and care for it. To expand the understanding of peace and justice – and to realize how one person can make a difference. These ideas come together in our year-round creative activities of art, music, puppetry, theater and film blended with social, environmental, community and cultural awareness.
