Boys and Girls Club Kaleidoscope Academy

Mission:

To provide mentorship and foster empowerment in youth by creating a space to share ideas, bridge the gap of cross-cultural misunderstanding, and provide various activities focused on youth development, empowerment, and mentorship. This year, we are hoping to hold meetings at both Kaleidoscope Academy and the Lawrence University campus. Through weekly meetings and special events, we hope to promote the following traits in the teens so that they are comfortable and able to make educated decisions regarding academics and work later in life.
