HOPE Commuity Coalition summer safety tips

HOPE Commuity Coalition summer safety tips

Summer is approaching fast, and that means our youth will be out and about in their communities. The HOPE Community Coalition would like to pass on a few tips to help the communities in Jefferson County ensure that our youth have a safe, healthy and substance abuse-free summer.

For youth, summer can mean freedom and exploration. Many youth have abundant free time and limited supervision. Because of the normal developmental process of striving for independence and self-exploration, summer is perceived as 'mine,' unlike any other time of the year. Creating a drug-free message that youth can embrace and live by during the summer months will set the community-wide norm that substance use is unhealthy.

Coming to Riverfest? Go over Sunny's Safety Plan

Coming to Riverfest? Go over Sunny's Safety Plan

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. -- Riverfest coordinators, along with ¡Hola! Arkansas and Today's THV, want to help provide a plan for kids and their families who become separated.

The scariest thing for children is to become separated from their family during a huge, crowded event. And the worst feeling is not knowing where to go to be reunited with loved ones.

There will be four Information Tents strategically placed throughout the park. Families will be encouraged to visit these booths and discuss "Sunny's Safety Plan" before enjoying the day's activities. They will be introduced to the booth volunteers and "Sunny." "Sunny" will be posted on a big sign at each booth and the volunteers will give children a "Look For Sunny" sticker to wear.

This will help the children remember what they're looking for. If a child becomes lost, they will look for the "Sunny" symbol and know that it is a safe place to go.

Upcoming events at Mosaic Templars museum

LITTLE ROCK, Ark. (KTHV) -- The Mosaic Templars Cultural Center of Little Rock is all about sharing Arkansas history through the arts.

The "Southern Journeys" exhibit, which runs through August 2011, is one way they're doing this. But according to Quantia Fletcher, director of education at the museum, there's more than one way to get into the act.

I caught up with "Key" at the museum earlier this week. Hear what she had to say about the Mosaic Templars' upcoming events.
