Kickoff 4 Kids House

By using an innovative approach to the standard community center, the K4K House will establish a Competition Outreach Achievement Center amongst high schools to improve school attendance, grades, good behavior, physical activity and community service. It will be a place where kids will challenge each other in a safe and nurturing environment. In K4K House, expectations are high and failure is not an option. Not only will educational programs be supported, but also athletics and total community achievement is the goal. To accomplish this task, K4K will place significant emphasis on the overall health of the surrounding community. In a community where high educational achievement is valued and aberrant behavior is frowned upon, where success is modeled and failure is no longer the norm, communities are positioned to experience higher levels of success. K4K House will create a system that will steer highs school kids energy in a positive manner and not only give them that motivation to surpass a high school level education but also make them feel that they can contribute positively to society.

It’s a points based competition by which this high schools students will be competing to earn points for themselves and collectively for their school. Points can be earned by,

  • School Attendance (1pt for each day)
  • Increased GPA by 10% plus (100pts)
  • Involvement in 5 plus hours a week in some sort of physical activity (5pts/week)
  • Good evaluation by local community resource center counselors i.e. Big Brother Big Sister, Youth Center, etc (5pts/week)
  • Good evaluation by High School teachers and Councilors (5pts/week)
  • Community service hours (1pt for every hour of community service)
