BUILDING A HEALTHIER, MORE SUSTAINABLE BRONX CHILD THROUGH REAL WORLD TEACHINGS
OVER 10,800 YOUTH SERVED
MISS ABBIE'S KIDS
AS REQUESTED THERE ARE NOW SEVERAL WAYS TO GIVE
SO, WHAT'S NEW?
Greetings family, so... here's what is new, THIS is our first year launching a new summer program called Miss Abbie's Girls Camp-style Summer Sleep Away Club. It's the experience of a camp with the lifelong bonding of a club.
10 girls, 1 week on a palatial 18 acre farm, where the emphasis is learning how to farm, swim, learn about money matters, enjoy theater/improv, public speaking, lake boating, camp fires and so much more.
The only campstyle/club program from The Bronx that is focused on teaching Bronx girls the art of farming/agriculture and swimming, we just can't wait to get started.
WHAT'S GOING DOWN @MAK'S
Miss Abbie's Kids Inc. is a place where youth learn, grow, explore and develop healthy minds and bodies through hands-on real-world teachings thus becoming more sustainable adults.
Seven Starz, Off Da Block and Not At The Side Seat, are all integral programs that accompany MAK's overall mission of a healthier Bronx child. While highlighting a focus on the importance of avoiding preventable chronic diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, coronary illness and reducing likelihood becoming systems impacted adults.
Most recently we have developed two additional programs that we know will increase our young people. MAK's Girls Camp-style Summer Sleep Away Club and Black Home-school Parent Initiative
Our children at MAK's enjoy the benefit of learning from their community adults, professionals in each area and local officials on how to be Positive Powerful People.
Through workshops, community events, legislative and community organizing with varying themes, hands-on work experience, guidance and structure we intend to strengthen The Bronx Child substantially and put a serious dent in levels of mass incarceration through prevention.

With a keen lens for how to spark creativity in young people, I am committed to using the art of Spoken Word and creative writing as a source of increasing children.

Being the youngest executive on the team, it is essential that our voices are driving the changes that we need to be truly successful in life.

Children are naturally free critical thinkers, if we can nourish this from their youngest ages, there is no doubt in my mind that it could be SKIES THE LIMIT for our youth.
