MISSION. VISION. INTENTIONAL. GOALS.
Recognizing the enormity of the challenges our society faces, KIC-IT is dedicated to making
a lasting impact through our initiatives & programs for the youth in Johnson County.
Each program and initiative embraces our core values: Community. Action. Resilience. Education. Sustainability.
YOUTH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM
We see every challenge as an opportunity, and this initiative helps us ensure that our clients are better prepared to manage the unique situations they find themselves in. We are invested in innovative approaches that empower our community. Through our individualized, person-centered coaching approach we help individuals set goals, make connections, and achieve sustainability.
DROP-IN @ THE YOUTH CENTER
Clients have access to laundry facilities, can eat a warm meal, receive hygiene, pantry items or clothing, use computers, and spend time talking with staff and peers.
EDUCATION & OUTREACH
The goal of our monthly Youth Action Nights is all about community! Any young adult (ages 16-25) in Johnson County can join us! These events are sponsored by community partners.
You are welcome here.
Sometimes the cost of coming out means family rejection & facing homelessness. LGBTQ youth are at higher risk of homelessness, sexual exploitation, & violence. Yet there are currently no federal programs designed to meet the needs of gay or transgender homeless youth.
KIC-IT wants every youth feel included, safe, and supported.
