Over the summer, Marquette University students lead this program at the Playhouse. It was so exciting to see our participants grow their skills all summer long. The Marquette students were able to gain valuable skills in planning activities and lessons for our population and build relationships with so many fun kids!

This was in an email we received after the end of the summer program. I just wanted “to reiterate how grateful I am for your hospitality this summer. GiGi’s is such an amazing organization and I enjoyed getting to know you, the GiGi’s staff, and the GiGi’s families. Everyone was so kind and welcoming. It was such a wonderful learning experience for the Marquette OTD students. Again, thank you so much!” -Maggie, on-site OT program supervisor
