The FLOW program under Amigos De Bolsa Chica has a mission with a strong emphasis on education: to students, the community, and to its Volunteers.  As the Program Manager, I present information to our volunteers to feed that continuing need for education.  Here are the past presentations from our FLOW meetings, but please attend and learn with us!  You can check out our meeting schedule here
