KNS Institute has a seven-week summer and extended year program designed to build resiliency skills, positive identity, and self-esteem. Participants will be exposed to academic enrichment activities to improve academic outcomes in the area of mathematics, technology, communication and behavioral skills.

Why Choose KNS?

KNS Institute provides a safe and accepting environment for youth that will reduce risky behaviors and prevent them from engaging in the same behaviors in the future. The defined goals are as follows: To develop an awareness of his or her own leadership potential; to assist young people in developing essential leadership skills that enable them to act responsibly in all aspects of their lives; to prepare them to be active citizens who possess the leadership abilities to meet present and future challenges in the larger scope of community; and to provide youth with opportunities to learn and practice essential leadership skills within a learning community. The objectives of the program are adapted from the national standards for youth development and leadership and will guide KNS Institute.
