A great summer opportunity for our youth!


Please help us in our search to identify youth to participate in an exciting and unique new Summer Youth Volunteer Opportunity.

If you live with or know a student with a dramatic bent*, please ask him or her to consider earning some community service hours with our Creative Drama team this summer. We are looking for 6 – 12 youth to help create and perform three skits (based on three of Aesop’s Fables) that communicate Red Cross messages, encouraging our child audiences to Make a Kit, Make a Plan and Get Trained.

See details below and feel free to forward. There really IS a place for everyone in service to the American Red Cross!

Summer 2009 Youth Volunteer Opportunity!
With the American Red Cross, Cincinnati Area Chapter

-- That’s Edutainment!
Huh? What? What’s Edutainment?? --
-- Dramatic pieces that entertain as they educate!
You mean the audiences have fun while they learn? --
-- Absotively!
Fantabulous! --

Are you a creative type who would like to put your dramatic talent to work for the American Red Cross? Join our Creative Drama Team!

If you have….
• a creative mind
• an adventuresome spirit
• willingness to contribute to a team project
• some acting experience
• an interest in script development
• an understanding of “what works” with child audiences
• the ability to park your ego at the door
• summer daytime availability on Mondays and Tuesdays
• a need to earn community service hours (or not!)

….then THIS is the place for you!

Using three of Aesop’s Fables as a starting point, we will write, rehearse and perform educational skits for a child audience. Our goal will be to delight our audiences as we teach them about some important Red Cross safety messages - and to have some fun ourselves as we perform!

The Lesson
Make a Disaster Plan
Make a Disaster Kit
Learn First Aid

The Story
“The Tortoise and the Hare”
“The Grasshopper and the Ant”
“Androcles and the Lion”
