Celebrates is Pro Kids | The First Tee of San Diego’s premier annual fundraising gala. It is also an opportunity to reflect on our accomplishments and to honor a special person who goes above and beyond to give back to the community in ways that align with the Pro Kids mission. Visit the official Celebrates event page for more information.
The City Heights Young Writers Workshop is an opportunity for young writers of all levels and interests to interact with highly regarded authors, illustrators, and other publishing industry professionals and gain insight about what’s it’s like to work in this field. It is open to youth ages 11-21. You may read more about our presenters here.
City Heights is a hub for refugee resettlement and one of the most ethnically diverse neighborhoods in the City of San Diego. We hope that helping ignite the passion for reading and writing among City Heights’ youth will lead to greater representation of diverse voices within the book world.
This workshop is dedicated to the memory of Jeannine Helmstetter, a long-time literacy advocate and supporter of Pro Kids.
