Kids Work it Out was founded in 2005 to combat childhood obesity and improve the quality of life for children in Detroit through a nationally acclaimed formula of yoga practice, mindfulness, social & emotional learning, trauma coping, and nutrition education delivered throughout Detroit schools and community centers.
Since 2005, the program has changed the lives of over 15,000 children!
Our positive impact on the children of Detroit:
· 85% increased health through yoga
· 72% use breathing techniques to reduce stress
· 73% concentrate better in the classroom
· 93% feel better about life because of yoga
· 88% eat healthier
Based on this life-changing success, the Center for Health and Community Impact at Wayne State University is poised to launch the "Academy for Mindfulness & Youth Yoga" to give the children of Detroit more comprehensive and in-depth opportunities to improve their health and quality of life. For years, Detroit children have asked for more opportunities to experience our unique formula beyond their schools yet no such opportunities exist in the city. We've heard their voices and are ready to take action!!
AND WE NEED YOUR HELP TO REACH OUR GOAL OF $25,000!
Join our movement to make a difference in the lives of Detroit children.
