How Can We Fill the Day? We Have Almost No Budget for Supplies: What Are Some Low Cost – High Value Options that Could Appeal to Many GEMS® States?

The goal is to train team members in set-up, use, break-down, and storage of the materials, so engagement opportunities happen as needed, not just as scheduled.
