28 Dec Support for Kids Making It
The Blake and Bailey family fund is proud to announce our continued support for Kids Making It Inc.
Kids Making It is a nationally recognized 501(c)(3) nonprofit youth program, teaching woodworking, life and entrepreneurial skills to at-risk youth from age 8 into young adulthood. Their goal is for KMI youth to stay out of trouble, stay in school, graduate and go on to the workforce or college, thereby maturing into successful adults. Through the design/build process, KMI youth learn patience, pride, perseverance, confidence, teamwork and self-esteem, building character and learning the truth of actions and consequences.
They have served over 4000 at-risk youth since 1994 and have produced an amazing track record of success. The teens in their program have a ZERO high school dropout rate and are much less likely to get into trouble. They learn important vocation skills, develop a sense of teamwork and pride, and have to opportunity to earn income by selling their shop-made projects and keeping 100% of the proceeds.
We are proud to support Jimmy and his team of change makers!
