Hi, I'm Elyn. I'm the Assistant Theatre Director and Newsletter Founder & Editor at My Place To Be.
Last school year, I became My Place To Be's first Ohio State University intern. Recently, I graduated from OSU with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology. I have come back in 2010 to help Theatre Director Catherine Hughes teach acting classes on Saturday mornings. I have worked with kids grades 6 through young adult this year.
Working with the MP2B kids has always been fun. Your kids will have a blast learning and playing in a judgment free environment. We all have something about us that makes us unique; MP2B encourages those qualities to take the spotlight.
We hope to see you and your family at MP2B events.
For students who may have social emotional or academic challenges they may need additional prep time to get ready for the next step. This will be the third year for our transitions camp and we have seen some great outcomes preparing our students. This year we will be doing 2 weeks.
June 18th - June 22nd and July 16th - July 20th.
These are mini life boot camp on looking at what we really want to do in life. Looking at aptitude tests and seeing what areas are best suited for the next step. If college is where we want to go looking at planning on what happens in high school to get us ready. If we want to go to trade school or right into job force what do we need to do to hold down a job. How do you write a resume and fill out an application. What social skills do we need to move forward in life.
How do we go to the grocery store, create a budget, how much money do we need to make to live on our own? Want a car? What do you have to do to be a responsible car owner? License, insurance, gas and maintenance all those things that we don't think about. Life can be hard for our students but if we can prepare them for some of these challenges and have them thinking about the next step they will do great!
Camp starts daily at 9:30 and goes to 3:30; Cost is $150 for the week. (Autism Scholarship and Jon Peterson Scholarship can be used for these camps) My Place to Be also has additional scholarships available to families in need. Any questions please contact Christa Milner at [email protected] or call 740-899-4296.
All Children need a little help, a little hope and someone who believes in them
