Symposia Community Events – Dec. 2019

510 Washington St, Hoboken, NJ 07030

Looking for a diverse and stimulating place to volunteer your time? Does the idea of community-building appeal to you? Look no further. At Symposia we have opportunities to fit a wide array of interests. Whether you are a people person who enjoys interacting with the community, a computer technician who welcomes a challenge or someone wanting to tackle poverty issues and international causes, you can carve your altruistic niche here. Our volunteers set their own pace and plan their own schedules. This flexibility affords you a way to serve the community without major changes to your current lifestyle. All you have to do is stop in and tell us what you enjoy doing most. If it’s not already in place, we’ll try to find a way to make it happen.

Puppetonia Puppet Shows at Symposia Bookstore

Since its inception, Puppetonia has taught children so much more than just their ABC’s and 123′s. The music and puppet shows incorporate important social skills, early academics, thinking skills, motor skills, and self-expression.

The music is fun and upbeat, and the children are encouraged to move to the rhythm, follow verbal instructions, practice sequential movements, and have a great time. And there are bubbles galore!

 PUPPET SHOWS: Mon, Wed, Fri: 10 and 11 am

BABY YOGA (6 weeks to crawling): Tuesday at 1.30 pm

TODDLER YOGA (crawlers to 24 months) Thursdays at 12 pm
