To educate and entertain, promoting a positive image of self-esteem, confidence and the importance of community to both young readers and adults. Susie’s Stories will encourage a positive attitude toward problem solving through storytelling, and will also focus on understanding and preparing for extreme weather events. My purpose is to keep children and families safe; before, during and after extreme weather events.
D.U.A.N.E. Mission Statement:
This program seeks to educate children by introducing valuable health and safety information about staying safe during extreme weather events and occurrences. We will highlight the importance of what to do in an emergency and address planning, preparedness, response and recovery efforts for the community. The goal is to have children play a unique role and be a valuable asset by being involved in a youth preparedness program; by learning and passing on knowledge to their families and communities.
