Oppenheimer Haas Foundation presents:
POSITIVE EXPOSURE: THE PEARLS PROJECT
A WESTCHESTER EVENING WITH RICK GUIDOTTI
TUESDAY, APRIL 8, 2014
PURPOSE OF THE EVENT
Through the introduction of the Pearls Project to the students in the Westchester Jewish Center, Westchester Reform Temple, and Westchester Day School communities, the students have become more interested in and sensitive to their peers living with genetic, physical and behavioral differences as they learned about the Pearls Ambassadors and then blogged with them from November to December 2013.
Additionally, our students have conveyed this information and enthusiasm to their families and the greater Westchester community. In an effort to culminate the Project, a proposal is being made to give the students, their families, and the greater Westchester community an opportunity to hear about the genesis of Positive Exposures and the Pearls Project from its creator, Rick Guidotti at a community event for the participating groups.
