Santa Barbara

Kids on the Block

Serving the Santa Barbara community since 1989, Kids on the Block® explores a wide range of important  social issues through puppet presentations to school aged children.  Las Aletas member volunteers, using 3-foot-tall puppets, perform at local preschool and elementary schools using carefully developed scripts to educate and engage young audiences. This unique program fosters discussions about issues such as name-calling, bullying, divorce, safety, and accepting people's differences.

Mission Statement: Assistance league of Santa Barbara is a nonprofit all-volunteer organization that develops and implements programs to benefit children and adults in Santa Barbara County.
