This year’s carnival is once again sponsored by the teens and staff of the White Center Teen Program. The WCTP offers free recreational, educational and social enrichment programming to over 800 culturally diverse participants ages 12-19 each year. The program operates five days a week, forty-eight weeks a year and provides structured recreational classes and programs, homework assistance, educational and computer resources, leadership training, volunteer opportunities, special events, field trips, and drop-in activities. The Annual Halloween Carnival is traditionally one of the teens’ favorite volunteer events. Program staff estimate at least fifty teens will volunteer this upcoming Saturday.
