Y Kids Club
Kids Club, now in its second year, continues the fun educational tenor
of TV12 through off-air and in-person activities that help young children
explore their world and open their minds.
Y Kids Club members come together in a variety of settings in the community.
Activities include special screenings, character meet-and-greets, storytelling
and crafts. Parents benefit from participating with their children by
attending special workshops conducted by our Ready to Learn team.
With a Family
Membership to WHYY, children ages 1 through 8 are enrolled
in the Y Kids Club. As members they receive a welcome letter; a subscription
to BUZZ, our quarterly interactive newsletter filled with crafts,
educational games, and information on family-friendly events in the area;
a character birthday card and gift; invitations to special Y Kids Club
events; and a MemberCard.
Since its inception, the Y Kids Club has reached more than 3,000 children
and adults at events held in WHYYs Independence Foundation Civic
Space - from a Halloween bash to a Libertys Kids party and
community venues, including a preview of the Arthur exhibit at the
Please Touch Museum to meeting characters such as Barney.
In FY04 look for more activities for Y Kids Club members and their
parents, including an event focused around George Shrinks at The New Jersey
State Aquarium and the Halloween bash at WHYY.
