BERKELEY COUNTY KIDS WHO CARE INC
March 2, 2011
I am a kindergarten teacher in Berkeley County and have found the Kids Who Care board to be an amazing group of dedicated volunteers who truly want to inspire the youth of today to be environmentally aware of the impact we have on this earth. They are there from the beginning of the school year with contacts available to volunteers in a wide array of businesses to help teachers with their project ideas. The NatureScope field day they put together is superb, and provides an opportunity for students to experience a full day of science outside the classroom. As a bonus, they award monetary prizes for projects and my class project just provided a $200 prize that will help enhance our environmental science studies. This non-profit organization ROCKS!
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
having an on-going, sustainable project that has excited my class. It is very empowering to 5 and 6 year old children to be doing something that is so far reaching.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
help them get the word out that they exist! Encourage more local (and even national!) businesses to get on board. We are doing exciting things in South Carolina! Help us to continue to empower our youngest scientists!
Professional with expertise in this field & My class recycled broken pieces of crayons donated from the entire school community. We turned them into alphabet letters and numbers. We use them everyday, and when they turn into bits, we recycle those, too!.
