The kids in need program is great for both sides: those that need help and those groups looking for a way to help worthy causes either locally or nationally. I can not thing of a better way to match the two up.

Moving forward, I will continue to use the service and highly recommend
both perspective programs and donating foundations to investigate for themselves how well the program works

The Kids in Need Grant that my students received allowed them to create their own business! By receiving the $500.00 grant monies, Transition Students in the T.R.A.C.T. Program bought 3 new shredders. They now receive all the school's important shredding boxes in our district, and do all the shredding themselves. They then take the shredding bags to the recycling center for processing, with TRACT provided transportation.
Combined with their shredding project, they also collect all schools cafeteria cans, bottles, etc. to be recycled.
Students then bill each school for shredding/recycling services completed. Money returned to the TRACT Program by schools is deposited directly into the student TRACT fund, and students then decide how and where the money is spent with teacher support. This great project gives students an opportunity to learn responsibility for their job, follow through with their commitment, and budgeting/banking skills with their money. The kids love it!

My students are happy with the project they are doing. They feel pride in their work, as they are providing a necessary service, and they are learning good job skills! They are also learning to cooperate with each other, problem solve, and work as a team to accomplish a goal! Great skill development with student driven energy and success is possible because of this opportunity.

I would continue to do this the same, but expand in our district. I would also like to have students present the project to each school principal/etc. to encourage their expertise with speaking and engaging with others.

Kids in Need is the perfect name for this program because it truly helps Kids in Need. With more and more cuts to education, it is difficult to get the needed resources to make learning a great experience for our youth. Students that are actively engaged retain the learning better and the money from these grants helps students apply their learning in a meaningful way. One that is better for all students and schools. Thanks for helping our Kids in Need!

My students produced a Fashion Show for the fashion marketing class. The money helped us create a real show that was a hit! Students show fashions that are appropriate for the workplace and those that are not. It was a creative way to show how to dress for success and to connect with the students interests for a career in the fashion industry. A win-win situation.
