Homeschool KWAKers

Thanks you so much for your groups hard work! We so appreciate you bagging the crayons and the fun melted shape crayons. They are so cute! A lot of people have commented on those. Also the craft bags are so nice to have and ready to hand out. The kids also enjoyed the cards that you made. It helped make their days a little more fun in the hospital. Thanks again for your kindness and generosity in doing these things for us.

“Kids With A Kause” is a free, community-based, youth-led service program. The Homeschool group began in November 2015 to respond to interest in the homeschool community in having service-learning integrated into their homeschool curriculum.

Youth engage in regular youth-directed service projects and raise their own funds, with proceeds going to support future service projects. KWAKer youth decide which projects they want to do, plan them, and carry them out with the support of an adult facilitator, while incorporating key elements of service-learning (Investigation, Planning, Action, Reflection, Demonstration, and Celebration).

Parent involvement is an important part of this program and is required for students under 8 years of age.
