PROGRAM PULSE: KM365 KIND VINE (Winter 2021/22)
Where else to start except for the fact that we were ECSTATIC to welcome our kids, teens, and Ambassador leaders back on-campus! Although we continued to learn and grow together virtually during the pandemic, it sure is nice to have some in-person exchanges again. This academic year looks great for our kids as they develop their social-emotional skill set, celebrate and appreciate individuality, and engage in projects that positively impact our communities. In August, our kids engaged in optimistic thinking to work toward positive outcomes. In September, they explored being self-aware. In November, they honed skills to powerfully navigate their lives and our world, and in December, they dove into social awareness.
Kindness In Action
Through our new and improved Kindness In Action (KIA) service project initiative, kids in our virtual and in-person clubs engaged in giving back to their communities. Members painted and spread Kindness Rocks. They addressed food insecurity, supported our front-line workers, made handwritten cards for our active military, and took part in disaster relief drives, to name a few things. All of this within just the first few months back in action. To learn more about our KIA program, visit our Events Calendar where you’ll find the latest information and project opportunities for which you can take part.
