Kids In Action School Program Support
The Kids In Action (KIA) school program is a fun, free, afterschool program for children in Grades 1-6. The 1.5 hour KIA program consists of games, songs, Bible stories and a healthy snack. At KIA children have the opportunity to connect with peers and positive, caring adults. Using Bible stories, drama and music we desire to build positive character traits in the children who come to our program.
The approximate time commitment for these programs is from 3-5pm or until 7pm if you wish to help with our grade 5/6 program.
We run this program at various schools in the North East corner of Edmonton. Qualifications:
- a desire to foster positive relations with children
- a willingness to help out
- Christian faith is not a requirement, but you must be comfortable with our program content and not be disrespectful of what we are teaching
- a fun attitude
You will gain valuable experience working with a great variety of children, and learning from our staff as well. We hope all volunteers will feel the difference and impact that our programs make each and every week.
