Kids on the Move for Success mission is….
Believes that there are many issues that contribute to the success of children. For children to succeed, they must feel safe, must be transported to a world beyond their everyday life, learn that STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) fields are available to all (African American and girls) and that giving back to the community is important in learning acceptance and developing leadership skills.
Kids on the Move for Success believes compassion, confidence and control are foundational elements in the success of children now and in the future. Our programs are designed to be mobile and dynamic allowing us to impact communities at the local, state and national level.
Broadening visions by transporting them beyond their everyday life and giving children a voice allows them to succeed now and in the future.
Kids on the Move for Success team has a diverse range of backgrounds and skill sets, but we share a common goal to change the next generation. We work hard in accomplishing our mission – but being able to show our students “LovingTuff” tools are the best reward of it all.
