In early December, the Intranet Connections team had an afternoon to help the 150+ families in need at KidStart, a local prevention and diversion program for kids age 6+. Our team built food hampers for the families of children that are mentored in this program, and while doing so, we had the opportunity to learn about this one-on-one mentoring program that’s been running strong for over 20 years.
KidStart encourages young people to develop their own interests, support learning & skill-building and open doors for them to participate in community life. In the program, volunteers are brought on board to develop a positive relationship with the youth and engage in activities that promote success and achievement. KidStart is a wonderful organization, and they need volunteers! If you would like to inquire about volunteering at KidStart, please visit their volunteer page.
