The biggest goal for the Young Scholars Academy Spring Break was to help these kids become self-aware of what they could do here at school and in their communities.
We partnered with the Colorado Springs Police Department and they were able to come down and help us in this plan! We discussed all kinds of safety, being road safe, gun safety, and ways to advocate for themselves and friends- we even had kids coming up with plans after their visit!
Another way we incorporated a “giving” mindset was by making hero sandwiches with the kids and delivering them! They loved seeing the direct reaction that the officers had, they were able to work hard and show how just a simple act could change someone’s day!
