Consult 4 Kids Story
Working closely with young people is a wonderful opportunity to watch the transformation of a child into an adult. The metamorphosis is truly remarkable to observe, and in out-of-school time and during the school day you have the opportunity to do more than simply watch—you have the opportunity to support the transformation. With this joy there also comes tremendous responsibility. What you realize is that the opportunity to transform is not equitably distributed among all youth, in fact, some young people have limited opportunity to participate in the process at all. This is the process of "becoming".
Consult 4 Kids is committed to social justice and believes social justice can be achieved when a space is created for social change, and this space is found, in part, in school. We agree with Margaret Mead who stated: "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."
As a small group of thoughtful and committed citizens, C4K has a dream. The dream is of a cadre of young people who day-to-day practice the advanced citizenship required of Americans.
