How to get to Sesame Street

Smart Start Of Transylvania County Executive Director, Deb Tibbetts

"Sesame Street in Communities (SSIC) is a bilingual, multimedia initiative that harnesses the power of our engaging Muppets and proven content to reach children across the country with critical educational materials. Through direct partnerships with community providers, Sesame Street in Communities delivers laughter and learning to children and families who need it most."

Recently members of the GetSet Transylvania collaborative headed to New York City for a day of sharing, learning, and connecting with fellow "Sesametized" community partners from around the country.
