EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR'S MESSAGE

Summer is almost over, the days are getting shorter and the nights are beginning to get cooler, however things are just beginning to heat up here at Sesame. Our robust free afterschool programs are about to re-open in full swing and we are ready to present Visions for the West Indian Day Parade. There is so much joy, excitement and anticipation in our programs, the Mas Camp and our community at large. We have just wrapped on our free Summer Camp Programs and completed our Summer Youth Employment Program. I am proud to share that Sesame Flyers assisted 600 young people with employment, for some their first job. This summer has been the fulfillment of a clear vision for success, teamwork and a commitment to youth, community and culture.

Our supporters are eagerly inquiring about their favorite performer. We assure them they are returning to our stage. The vibes are great.

FUTURE ENTREPRENEUR AT THE LIGHTHOUSE!

Group leaders said to our summer camp participants after having their own version of Shark Tank, the famous saying from the hit television show, “I have an offer for you!” Mr. Duran and Mr. Edwards were amazed by a few of the middle school participants. So much so, that they had to offer a couple of deals. Two campers worked together, Logan and Savannah and used their imagination and invented a next generation pineapple car. It would be a two story vehicle that comes in either yellow and black or orange. Instead of wheels it hovers. In addition, if by chance you are running late, getting the pineapple car moving on requires a password to get moving faster.
