We give thanks to God always for all of you, making mention of you in our prayers;
1 Thessalonians 1:02
2022 was a great year for KidWorks and we have a lot to celebrate (Click to read last week’s blog recapping highlights from 2022).
As we look forward to the coming year, KidWorks is profoundly grateful for the work God is doing. We are embarking on a milestone that only God knew was possible for us when we first opened our doors in the summer of 1993.
Yes, 2023 marks KidWorks’ 30th anniversary.
It’s going to be much more than a date on the calendar. It’s going to be a celebration, a year-long one. Much is still in the works and we’ll share more details as they’re finalized. In the coming weeks, our e-news, blogs and socials social media will include ways you can get involved.
KidWorks continues to strategically expand programs to better serve the needs of our students and the community. Late last year, our executive team spent time planning the year ahead and wanted to share some key highlights:
Largest Graduating Class: KidWorks Class of 2023 is impressive. Not only is it our largest graduating high school class in KidWorks history, many have already received college acceptances and scholarships. We will be celebrating them at our Night of the Stars in June.
Expanded Mentorship Program: Our goal is to pair each high school senior with a mentor that will continue to walk alongside them as they transition to college. Mentors are critical to a student’s success
Additional Overnight Experiences: Experiential learning is crucial to a youth’s growth and development. Overnight college field trips, summer camps and retreats allow students to travel to new places, embark on new experiences, grow spiritually and ultimately learn to believe in their own abilities.
Alumni Reunion: Whether you were a part of KidWorks three years ago or 30 years ago, we invite you to join us on June 24th for our alumni reunion.
Signature Events: We have four signature events scheduled for 2023 with something for everyone.
The greatest gift is witnessing firsthand how—one by one—lives are being transformed at our centers. KidWorks is grateful for the way God weaves our programs into the lives of our students, volunteers, partners and staff, working through those He has called to serve.
Over the next 12 months, there will be many opportunities for families, friends and partners to join forces to celebrate KidWorks and prepare for a brighter tomorrow. We couldn’t do it without you!
