It’s All About Kids offers the following programs:
The Buzz Into Books Literacy Campaign was implemented in 2002 to increase children’s excitement and interest in reading. Our mascot, “Buzz,” is a large bumble bee that promotes education and literacy awareness.
Buzz captures the attention and imaginations of school-age children who like to hear how he faced his own set of challenges and how he overcame them with self confidence and increased reading skills. Buzz tells a story about being a bumble bee with a large body and tiny wings. He didn’t think his wings could support him enough to fly. But then, by gaining knowledge and confidence, he learned that he could not only fly – he could soar.
The items Buzz gives to children are donated by the community through theIt’s All About Kids book and supply drive. Visit the How to Help section of our site to learn how you too can make a difference.
The Etiquette and Manners program was founded to help children learn critical social skills including grooming, conversation, table etiquette and social manners. It promotes self respect, respect for others, fairness and appreciation for family.
The goal of the program is to provide young people with the valuable gift self empowerment. By helping participants develop the ability to handle social, academic and professional situations with style and ease, Etiquette and Manners helps them succeed in life. They develop confidence, self-respect, leadership skills and integrity.
The age group served by the program ranges from kindergarten through twelfth grade. Content is targeted to each age, and lessons are fun and interactive. Young children explore sharing, playing fair and minding manners. Young adults learn about proper attire, interviewing techniques and advanced social skills. All lessons are designed to build confidence and blend traditional etiquette values with 21st Century manners.
The Etiquette and Manners program is a mobile program. It can be held in community centers, schools, clubs and other neighborhood or social venues by special request. Contact us for more information.
At the end of the seven week course the children participate in formal dining event where we celebrate their achievements and reward each child with a certificate of completion.
