Kids in Motion accepting applications for 2013 program
“Kids In Motion” (a summer pre-employment/life success training program for at-risk youth) began accepting applications on Tuesday, April 2 for the 2013 Louisiana KIM Summer Youth Program.
Any Louisiana youth currently in the sixth through eighth grade are welcomed and encouraged to apply. Applications will be accepted through Friday, April 12.
No late applications will be accepted. Forms may be picked up at the Louisiana Middle School from the guidance office.
Completed applications need to be returned to Mrs. Shireman (guidance counselor) by the April 12 deadline.
Applications must be signed by both parent/guardian and youth. No late applications will be accepted.
The goal of the K.I.M. program is to teach teens and pre-teens to value work, value their community and value their future.
Participants perform various community service projects and are given the opportunity to take part in many educational and motivational events throughout the summer.
In essence, the program prepares young people for their first real job and teaches many valuable life lessons regarding work ethic and responsibility. “Kids In Motion” is under the umbrella of Douglass Community Services, and is based out of Hannibal.
