A program to introduce children to different cultures through arts and entertainment will be offered this summer in Thousand Oaks.
The youth cultural program, sponsored by the Thousand Oaks branch of the American Assn. of University Women, will include arts, crafts, drama, folklore, food, games, music and dance of Greece, the American South, Peru and Polynesia.
