The REAL meaning of “giving back to the community” is what it’s all about in this Toberman Neighborhood Center (TNC) Back to School  program attended by 100’s of South Bay residents who received products and services from dozens of local vendors to get local kids and families supported by the Center ready for a healthy and successful school year. Kids received free backpacks loaded with school supplies and judging from the smiles on their faces (and their parents’ faces) everyone went home very happy and ready for a successful school year.

We’ll soon be at work on the next TNC video, a history of the Center based on photos and interviews with former students and staff.

Toberman Neighborhood Center (TNC) continues its focus on empowering children for a productive life by building character, integrity and self reliance as well as sharpening math, reading and social skills through their Summer Academy Program. This video, recorded at the center located at 1st and Grand in San Pedro, CA, opens from a child’s perspective and is characterized by extreme close-ups that look deeply into their eyes where their emotions, hopes and dreams are reflected.  To insure the children’s lines were delivered accurately the director said the line with the desired pronunciation and intonation and asked the child to copy. Amazingly, nearly all the kids did it in one take! Other footage shows the typical daily activities at TNC during this summer program modeled upon the forty developmental assets that the TNC staff build into the curriculum.
