Pilot Program Success

Pilot Program Success

In October of 2014 the Finding Voices program was piloted with a group of middle school kids participating in an after-school program at Bayview Baptist church in San Diego. The pilot was run in collaboration with Bayview charities, the charitable arm of Bayview Baptist Church and the director of the program Kathie Hardie. “The pilot has been a big success”, say’s Kathie, mentioning that she has seen improvement in behavior and focus from some of the most badly behaved children. Although Finding Voices was not initially created with middle school children in mind, we have had several request from other organizations to continue offering the program to this age group. In response to these request we are currently in the process of creating a training program that will train representatives from outside organizations to teach the program themselves under the Youth Campaigns umbrella.
