As a new member of the Jane Goodall Institute’s Roots & Shoots National Youth Leadership Council, Kye is excited to be starting his first project in collaboration with the Hot Springs YMCA. He and his high school team members are mentoring youth who are a full grade level behind in reading.
We will be working on many projects with the kids through the end of the summer, including STEM and seed to plate programs. We really want the kids to have fun while they are learning and maybe even make a difference. For this project, we helped the kids create and write Valentine’s Day cards for kids at Arkansas Children’s Hospital.
