The Kids In The Middle Campaign has Begun, Will You Join Us?

By Robert Ooghe | Project Coordinator

Dear Supporters,

Imagine a future where every student, irrespective of their background, unlocks their full potential. This vision is at the heart of Kids In The Middle (KITM), an innovative educational initiative by Duncan Tree Team, poised to redefine learning in New York City schools.

In collaboration with the New York City Department of Education and the Institute for Professional Excellence in Coaching (IPEC), we're introducing a holistic complement to education. Our focus, in tandem with academic development, is on incorporating emotional support and development to address the challenges our youth face today.

The KITM Coaching and Mentorship Program is designed to enable students who might be at risk of slipping through the cracks. By recognizing each student's unique abilities and leadership potential, we aim to uplift an entire generation. However, the realization of this mission hinges on the collective support of our community.

Our program, aimed at fostering resilience, empathy, and self-awareness, is now at a critical juncture.

Your contribution, regardless of size, signifies a shared belief in our mission and propels us toward the launch of our pilot program. It's an investment in the cornerstone project of the Duncan Tree Team dedicated to nurturing the untapped potential of under-resourced youth.

Reflecting on our journey since joining the GlobalGiving community in 2011, we're inspired by the impact we've achieved together, particularly in enhancing physical health. Today, as we expand our mission to encompass mental growth, we're reminded of the transformative power of your support.

Looking ahead, we're committed to broadening our reach and enriching our programs to cultivate a generation of young leaders ready to make a meaningful difference.

We are profoundly grateful for your ongoing support and belief in our mission. Your contributions have not only propelled us forward but have also ignited hope and opportunity for the youth we're privileged to serve. Stay tuned for updates on our initiatives and the continued impact of your support. Together, we're not merely changing lives; we're sculpting a brighter future.

With heartfelt thanks,

Duncan Tree Team
