In order for children to begin to feel comfortable with diversity, they must first feel a strong sense of self. Finding ways to celebrate individuality within a group helps each child to feel special, significant, and acknowledged. Students will gain access to a wide variety of diverse fiction books.

I love writing, and so I created a website with the help of my parents, to post my writing and try to create a community that cares for the environment and wants to create a better world. Changing our thoughts, and focusing in the good things that many people are trying to do. www.thethoughttree.com

It is shown in studies that the way kids grow up affects the way they live the rest of their lives. When we see our community, we see ourselves in a way. We see the good parts and the bad parts. We see the kids playing in the parks, we see our cars, our homes, our schools, the buildings we work in. But, we also see the parts in us that we can improve on. One way we can improve the community is put in a garden. Our group of seven student plan to do a flower garden in the front of our school and put a vegetable garden in the back of the school. We think that putting this in could improve our school and the spirit that we have for it. One small change can make a big difference.

Ministering to youth comes with a lot of challenges and puppets can help to overcome many of them. Children enjoy having fun during puppet presentations while learning at the same time. When you create a fun and educational environment, children will respond positively.

A mini grant will provide us with the opportunity to facilitate a camp that is geared towards the current issues our youth are facing. With teen suicide rates increasing, we feel this will be a good opportunity to provide a positive outlet to address their concerns

The KYE-YAC CLUBHOUSE will be designed to inspire youth and engage them in science through exploration, investigation, play, and literacy. We will have weekly programs aimed at inspiring pre-school children to have compassion for the earth and all life that inhabits it. It will be specifically designed for encouraging preschool-aged children to meaningfully examine and experience the everyday world around them. We will have the KYE-YAC CLUBHOUSE present innovative learning opportunities in a safe environment. The focal point of the new exhibit will be a unique “tree house” which toddlers can climb around and explore. Next to the treehouse, local artists will create an original mural depicting a giant tree with three-dimensional leaves filling the walls with native animals and birds - adding visual stimulation to further spark the curiosity of young “scientots” as they explore the world around them. Age appropriate books will be available to foster literacy based learning and programs will be held several times a week with science projects, crafts, reading, and play!
