An idea worth spreading
Kidzpirit International Network - The right programming, delivered through the right vehicle, at the right time, equals KidzpiritÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â‚¬Å¾Ã‚Â¢ Network.
Our focus is to deliver learning opportunities that build self awareness and support youth to experience first experience employment, not ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“survival of the fittestÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ or ÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã‹Å“no experience, no chanceÃƒÂ¢Ã¢â€šÂ¬Ã¢â€žÂ¢ barriers.
The world has changed and traditional education and school councils are no longer able to solely support it. Our kids require leadership and business programming aligned with what is needed to demonstrate their brilliance and acquire competencies to be financially independent.
I'm passionate about
