With the summer slowly approaching, many parents and their children are beginning to think of how they would like to spend their summer. The opportunities and possibilities are endless! Last month at Gladney’s Chinese New year party in NYC – we were honored to be joined by Mei-Yin Ng who has been teaching Chinese dance and language classes in the New York City area for almost 20 years. Many children adopted from China have enjoyed being students of Mei-Yin through her organization, the Laurel Project. The Laurel Project is offers a 2-week program in August that will use Manhattan’s Chinatown as their stomping ground for a day filled with exploring and learning basic conversational Mandarin, shopping, cooking, dancing, arts and crafts. What a great jewel of a program!
