ParentClick Kids Expo & Teens to Provide Resources, Entertainment and More

La Cumbre Plaza will host the 11th annual ParentClick Kids Expo & Teens from 9:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, March 21 at 121 S. Hope Ave. in Santa Barbara.

More than 100 local businesses and nonprofits will fill the plaza with booths meant to educate parents on the many programs and activities available to families in Santa Barbara from the newborn stage to teens.

Parents can gather information on camps, classes, health, sports, fitness, education, special-needs resources, nonprofit volunteer opportunities and more.

Kids will enjoy a variety of free interactive activities at every table, music, games, performances and entertainment.

In just one morning, teens can pick up applications for summer internships and volunteer programs, meet the directors and get connected to local nonprofits and businesses.

Typically, there are more than 2,000 in attendance throughout the morning at this free event

The City of Hope will be hosting a Bone Marrow Drive at the event to encourage parents to be tested.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
