   Developing a partnership with local churches, KidTrek establishes opportunities for their youth. Through modeling, training, and coaching KidTrek equips the Church to build such intentional, long-term relationships with families in crisis the kids will grow to become CHRIST-CHANGED, HOPE-FILLED, PRODUCTIVE ADULTS.
 
   The Walk is our effort to:
  1. Challenge the Church to get more involved in at-risk kids lives
  2. Give opportunities for Subscribers to share their own experiences and thoughts related to a previous Issue of The Walk.

   Please feel free to read, respond and even forward these emails on to those you think would be interested in getting involved in this movement.

   Your willingnes to join The Walk through advocating plays a vital role in accomplishing this mission, seeing kids grow to become Christ-changed, hope-filled, productive adults.
