kids nowKids Now builds self-esteem and leadership skills in grade 7 & 8 students to help them become confident, resilient youth who can transition successfully into high school and prepare for a brighter future.

Created by a Canadian educator in 1999, who saw a need to complement the existing school curriculum with life skills development, Kids Now has a proud tradition of helping vulnerable youth, their families and communities.  Over 15,000 youth have taken positive steps toward better futures by participating in the Kids Now program.

Kids Now delivers a free after-school life-skills and leadership mentoring program to grade 7 and 8 students. Our program builds resiliency in youth so they can steer away from negative influences and build important skills that will help them transition with greater confidence into high school and beyond.

This is a preventive & proactive program that builds self-esteem and leadership abilities, develops positive mental well-being, encourages healthy thinking and builds resiliency.  The program enables youth to cope with and overcome key challenges today like bullying, peer pressure, school/family issues, stress, anxiety, drugs and alcohol.

And Janet King joins Matters Of The Mind tonight at 8 to tell us more!  We chatted about bullying, cyber bullying, self esteem, decision making and more.
