Caring Cubs is ending the year with a new event that combines a hands-on service project with an athletic activity! We are excited to be partnering with Young Athletes Cleveland to support Providence House and hope your family will be able to join us.
The volunteer service projects are both for Providence House. Our “cubs” will decorate and sign friendship cards for children at Providence House and make ornaments for the their Christmas tree. Caring Cubs will provide all the necessary supplies for these projects.
The athletic active portion of the event will integrate the children from Young Athletes with our Caring Cubs to encourage education, acceptance and support for young children with disabilities. The activity will include Young Athletes basics (skipping, crab walk, bear crawls, etc) and a certified yoga instructor will lead an age and ability appropriate yoga session. The children from Caring Cubs will each be partnered with a Young Athletes child. Children should dress in play clothes suitable for athletic activity and are welcome to bring yoga mats but they are not required. Additional details will be included in the reminder email sent to registered families the week of the event.
Young Athletes Cleveland is a developmentally appropriate play program targeted towards children with intellectual disabilities ages 2-7 years old. Through Young Athletes, volunteers introduce young children to the world of sport, with the goal of preparing them for Special Olympics sports training and competition when they get older. The program focuses on the basics that are crucial to cognitive development: physical activities that develop motor skills and hand-eye coordination, and the application of these physical skills through sports skills programs. Youth Athletes currently holds events on the west side of Cleveland and athletes have come from over 26 different cities across the state.
Providence House is one of the nation’s oldest operating crisis nurseries among the 70+ in operation in the US and Canada today offering emergency shelter and care to children who are actively at risk for abuse and neglect due to family crisis. More than a shelter for at-risk children, the agency offers holistic services for children and their families including education, mentoring, case management and aftercare focused on family preservation. The primary goals of Providence House are to protect at-rick children, empower families in crisis, and build safer communities.
2014 has been a great year for Caring Cubs and we look forward to ending the year with this fun and meaningful event!
