The mission of The
is to promote the art of clowning to juniors, ages 9-18.
It is our desire to give them the skills and the confidence in
this art so they can help others in their time of need with smiles, laughter and
caring. Through The Smile Factory, a Jr. Joey learns and has
these skills to use for the rest of their lives in circumstances
where their heart will know just what to do. In The Smile
Factory, it is our hope that each member enjoy volunteering and giving
back to the community as a team. “The Smile Factory
Alley” is the only in body Junior Joey Alley recognized by our
World Clown Association and Clowns of America International.
On an ongoing basis, the board of The Smile Factory has continued
to strive and maintain a high quality level of clowning in
which the Jr. Joeys, their families and their community can
be proud. We continue to update the qualifications to
help maintain these standards.
