“KIM” program now accepting applications

Posted on Tuesday, March 19, 2013 at 3:03 pm

“Kids In Motion” (a summer pre-employment/life success training program for at-risk youth) will begin accepting applications on Monday, March 18 for the 2013 Bowling Green KIM Summer Youth Program.

Any Bowling Green youth currently in the 6th, 7th or 8th grade are welcomed and encouraged to apply.

Applications will be accepted through Friday, March 29.  No late applications will be accepted.

Forms may be picked up at the Bowling Green Middle School Office or from Ms. Becker.  Applications MUST be signed by both parent/guardian and youth and need to be returned to Ms. Amy Becker the Bowling Green Middle School by the March 29 deadline.

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.
