Clinton Elementary and Team Kids Challenge Students to Become Community Leaders
Wednesday, January 27, 2016
Compton Unified School District's (CUSD) Clinton Elementary School kicked-off a six-week pilot program, Monday, January 25, to empower students to make a difference in their community.
In partnership with Team Kids, Compton School Police, and the LA County Sheriff's Department, Clinton Elementary students, grades K thru 8, will participate in community service projects including: donating gently used towels and blankets for an ASPCA-LA animal shelter, donating gently used books and creating homemade bookmarks, and writing Valentine's Day cards for hospitalized veterans.
Student leaders from the upper grade levels will also sacrifice their lunch recess to organize and run a fundraising carnival benefiting a charity of their school's choice.
Principal Kanika White, Ed.D. said the program offers students the opportunity to see themselves as powerful agents of positive change.
"Often times children don't immediately realize how they can serve the community or change society, and change the things in life they want to see different. Through Team Kids' activities they will see how they can take action for their community and the world at large."
Principal White added that the program encourages students to take on leadership roles, which can boost confidence and ultimately academic performance.
"Any time we have the opportunity to empower students with leadership, confidence, and self-esteem, it will definitely help with student achievement."
Julie Hudash, founder and CEO of Team Kids, said her organization was drawn to Compton Unified School District's dedication to student success.
"The shared commitment to the children and the innovative spirit to bring something new to advance youth empowerment through our program makes us really excited to have our first pilot program in Compton Unified," she said.
"We run programs in 100 percent Title I schools, at schools in Newport Beach, Long Beach, and Arlington, Virginia...I can say kids are the same no matter where we go. They want to matter, be seen, be significant, and the want to know they can make a difference."
Compton School Police Chief William Wu said he and his colleagues will work closely with its partners to help make the Team Kids pilot program at Clinton a success. He also praised its focus on motivating students to serve their community.
"Compton School Police are very honored to partner with Team Kids to bring this program to our students. When you learn something this important at a young age, it stays with you for the rest of your life. We need their help to make a difference in the community. It's all of us working as a team."
