Child Creativity Lab

Child Creativity Lab is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization based in Santa Ana, California whose mission is to foster the next generation of critical thinkers, problem solvers, innovators, and leaders through hands-on creativity-enhancing exploration.

The in-person effort took part on October 15 and was led by Cushman & Wakefield’s Community Outreach Chairs Susan Keokham and Lloyd Legaspi in coordination with Child Creativity Lab’s CEO Tracey Hill, Director of Operations Tiffany Hayden and Volunteer Coordinator Zaira Arias.

The Cushman & Wakefield team came full STEAM with a maximum 10 volunteers allowed to participate due to COVID-19 restrictions. The team included, from Orange County Stephanie Phung plus her friend, Linda; Joe Rosena, Carlos Silguero, Noel Barlow, Lloyd Legaspi and his wife Lily, and from Inland Empire, Erika Avila and her friend Tiffany; and Karen Adame.

PUTTING THE TEAM IN STEAM:
Over a span of two hours, volunteers helped produce 242 Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Math (STEAM)-based kits consisting of Zipline Carrier Kits that Students will work independently to imagine, design, and create a prototype of a zipline carrier. The carrier must carry an object down the line as quickly as possible without dropping it. Students are challenged to use most of the pieces in the kit and to try a variety of hooks and fasteners to get their carrier down the line. The task is suited for middle & upper grades.

In addition, Cushman & Wakefield’s ASPIRE ERG contributed a $500 corporate sponsorship. They also volunteered to Child Creativity Lab in 2019 but was unable in 2020 because of COVID-19.

Lloyd said, “Child Creativity Lab is such a wonderful cause, and while we missed out in participating last year because of the pandemic, it was just great to finally be able to volunteer in person and to play a small role in helping the children of our community build their futures. We are hopeful that as restrictions are eased, we can continue to volunteer annually and in greater numbers!”

“Child Creativity Lab is so grateful to Cushman & Wakefield’s ASPIRE Employee Resource Group for their support,” expressed Tracey. “We are a small nonprofit organization, and without volunteers, we would not be able to continue to serve the community. Because of the ASPIRE Team, over 500 underserved children will get to experience the gift of STEAM. The learning loss over the past year is so great, and students are struggling to catch-up. Thank you to Cushman & Wakefield for making hands-on learning possible and inspiring the next generation of innovators and leaders.”

Cushman & Wakefield’s ASPIRE aims to celebrate the Asian and Pacific Islander culture by building a global community that is committed to the advancement and development of its members while serving as champions of diversity and inclusion.
