Kids on the Move for Success
Kids on the Move for Success, Inc. was founded on September 1, 2013, by Antoinette Tuff. After she prevented the school tragedy. Antoinette felt the need to help underserved children all over the world see a new beginning and to know they too can push pass their life circumstances and be prepared for a purpose in life. Kids on the Move for Success is sponsored by Microsoft, Wal-Mart Foundation, Wells Fargo, Chick-Fil-A, V-103, WSB-TV, Arsenio, Steve Harvey, Trumpet Awards, and PCM.
Kids on the Move for Success has awarded over 20 educational scholarships to students of all ages, both nationally and internationally. Many of these students are realizing their educational goals and attending college. We have made a special effort to support students from the students, teachers, and parents most affected by the tragedy that led to our formation.
Kids on the Move for Success has launched its new mentoring program called the Discovery sTEAM (DS) Mentoring Program. The mission of Discovery sTEAM Mentoring Program is to empower underserved youth from 3rd to 8th grade in at risk communities by fostering positive, onsite one-on-one mentoring relationships with students and professionals in the Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts & Math (sTEAM) fields. The mentors will serve as role models, increase interest, and bring awareness to the sTEAM fields and develop leadership skills. This will be accomplished by developing effective strategies that promote engaging, and informative individual and group sTEAM activities.
