Kidz-N-Character

Kidz-N-Character Program

Kidz-n-Character (KnC) is an award winning (Ohio Department of Education), Exemplary Prevention Program that uses the creative and performing arts to increase protective factors, reduce risk factors and build developmental assets in children and families.  By using an asset building framework, Kidz-n-Character reduces the likelihood that children will engage in high risk and inappropriate behaviors.

Kidz-n-Character focuses on using the arts and other creative, fun activities to develop positive life skills, leadership, team-building, respect for others, and service to the community. Our mission is to help kids:

1) Discover their gifts, talents, and interests

2) Grow their talents and skills and further develop positive character and values

3) Share with others through performance, outreach, and service. 

Kidz-n-Character provides programming to schools, churches, and community centers during the school  year and summers.
