How to Build a Resume That Stands Out Visually To Help Your Teen Land Their First Job

Creating a captivating resume that sparkles bright enough to catch an employer's attention is an art on its own terms.

With the ramp up pressure kids experience at school and the need to sign up to too many extracurricular activities, it’s no surprise how the number of teens employed have been declining over the past decades.
There are many benefits (and risks) of adolescent employment. The decision to allow your teen to have an after school job should be a well thought-out family decision based on how well they can manage responsibilities, time management and money.

The Other Ugly Duckling Makes a Splash at Center for Puppetry Arts

Renowned Spanish Artists Put Charming Spin on Classic Tale

WHAT: Guyi-Guyi: The Other Ugly Duckling by Periferia Teatro de Títeres of Murcia, Spain
Acclaimed Spanish puppet company, Periferia Teatro de Títeres, performs the English/Spanish bilingual production of Guyi-Guyi: The Other Ugly Duckling, a story about a crocodile accidentally born into a family of ducks. Guyi-Guyi lives happily with his family until he meets another crocodile and realizes his true nature. After learning that he is not like his feathered siblings, Guyi-Guyi goes on a journey of self discovery and finds that he is more than what meets the eye. Through play and humor, Guyi-Guyi is a new take on Hans Christian Andersen’s classic story The Ugly Duckling.
