Greeting from WonderRoot!
I am reaching out to you on behalf of WonderRoot’s Family Programs. In the last year, we have provided art-based services and opportunities to approximately 200 youth and families through our Family Day Workshops as well as our skills and experiential focused youth workshops. We are currently in the information-gathering process in order to devise new family-oriented art initiatives and fine-tune our existing family programming.
While we are in the process of developing programs, input from family-oriented stakeholders is absolutely crucial to us. We have drafted a short survey to gather input from stakeholders. We would very much appreciate if you could share the survey with your respective networks so that we can use the input we receive to tailor our upcoming programs to the needs of the community.
The survey can be found here: https://wonderroot.
We hope that you can help us by sharing this survey and look forward to the input we will receive.
