Youth for Youth

Where the passions and talents of youth aged 14 to 29 have a place.

We’re dedicated to empowering young minds to lead, cultivating a vibrant community where creativity thrives, and dreams take flight. Our ethos revolves around collaboration and hands-on experiences guided by the Plan, Do, Review framework. Within our supportive environment, youth shape their own path and create unforgettable moments for their peers, all under the mentorship of KIS staff.

What we offer

Leadership and mentoring for youth foster personal growth, build confidence, cultivate critical thinking skills, promote empathy, and empower them to become agents of positive change in their communities.

Outdoor activities for youth promote physical health, encourage environmental stewardship, enhance social skills, boost mental well-being, and foster a deeper appreciation for nature.

Participating in a book club cultivates critical thinking, expands knowledge, fosters empathy, promotes social interaction, and enhances communication skills.

Movie nights for youth provide entertainment, foster social bonds, spark meaningful discussions, encourage cultural exploration, and offer opportunities for relaxation and escapism.

Local guest speakers from different companies and organizations provide valuable insights, inspire career exploration, offer real-world perspectives, facilitate networking opportunities, and empower youth to pursue their passions and aspirations.
