Kidz Konnekt


Kidz Konnekt for those of you who don't already know is a local charity set up in 2004 to offer generic and targeted youth provision for young people 8-19yrs residing in Greater Eston. This work has gone from strength to strength over the last 10 years and with continued funding from the Big Lottery and the People’s Health Trust and a few other funders we are now able to provide a wide range of services across Redcar and Cleveland. 
 
Kidz Konnekt staff are highly trained and experienced in delivering Alternative Education, IAG, Career’s advice, small group work and accreditation to students and coupled with the other skills we have also picked up along the way we are hoping to work alongside the local schools in this area. We have experience working alongside schools/academy's engaging with the hardest to reach students through to the high achievers with great success.

All the activities have themes i.e. Team Work, Communication, Problem Solving and Leadership these skills help with building confidence and raising aspirations. 
 
If your school feels this is not for them I would appreciate the opportunity to take part in a school assembly to raise awareness of our services to your students and look at the possibility of hiring spaces for KK to utilise for delivering services to the young people and their community.
