CHINATOWN TEEN

In 1998, one of the volunteer programs we got involved with was the Phillips Brooks House Chinatown Teen afterschool program. Chinatown Teen was designed to give kids in the city a place to go after school to study, hang out, and learn some arts and crafts. They picked up juggling in just a few afternoons!

And they all fall down ... A good time was had by all.
