Camp Kinnect: A Sports-Based Youth Development Program.
An addressable problem: Studies have demonstrated that 62% of middle-school students will fail to be ready for college and career success by the time they graduate from high school, and 36% of those already falling behind are at risk of dropping out in their first year of high school. A proposed Solution: Camp Kinnect is an after-school program that provides middle-school students with meaningful opportunities for deep learning and personal growth through innovative curricula, highly trained staff, and intentional mentorship. The program is designed to harness the interests and passions of youth to produce an integrated development of character, life skills, and career aspirations. We strive to equip each child to create and achieve his or her own path to success in a challenging and supportive environment.
