Fuerza Bruta Review

Roughly translated: Brute Force – and you will feel it! This show thrives on the energy and powerful movements of its performers, constantly grabbing your attention from every direction. You will look up, down, left, right, squat and move in herds as the show comes to and around you.

Discover Long Island with Momee Friends Youth

Here at Momee Friends, we are so grateful to everyone who has become a part of our growing network. We love discovering all the wonderful things about Long Island, and we especially love connecting you and your family to all that the Island has to offer. One of the greatest compliments we have received has also become a call to action for us – do you have anything for my 10 year old? 

With that in mind, we are so excited to present “Discover Long Island with Momee Friends Youth!”

Discover Long Island with momee friends youth

 Momee Friends Youth will bring kids (ages 8-12) together in a safe and judgment-free environment where they can express themselves creatively and develop socially. They will take part in weekly team-building activities that will promote RESPECT, ACCEPTANCE, COOPERATION, and COLLABORATION.  They will have the opportunity to participate in service projects that will show them how rewarding it is to give back to the community, and they will also be empowered by their own purchasing power by writing reviews of local businesses which we will visit as a group.  We want our kids to take pride in who they are and certainly where they come from.  We invite any businesses or organizations to join us as Community Mentors by participating or sponsoring the program, giving you an opportunity to have a direct and positive impact on the lives of our youth.
