KIDS IN ACTION
Kids in Action (KIA) is one of our flagship initiatives at Grace in Action. As an organization committed to making a real difference in the lives of people in our community, we recognize the importance of starting with our youngest members. That's why we take great pride in our KIA program.
Our KIA program provides monthly educational trips to science and cultural centers, planetariums, aquariums, museums, and other destinations. We believe that by exposing children to these enriching experiences, we can help to broaden their horizons, expand their knowledge, and inspire their curiosity.
In addition to our existing KIA program, we are excited to announce the launch of our KIA Code Club this summer. This program is designed for children ages 8 and up and will provide opportunities for them to learn about coding and computer science in a fun and engaging way.
If you would like to learn more about our KIA program or have any questions, please don't hesitate to reach out to us at email@example.com. We would be happy to provide you with more information and discuss how you can get involved in supporting our efforts.
