CORE PROGRAMS

 

Our varied programs provide participants with age-appropriate activities that run the gamet from community outreach to educational tours and enrichment courses. Emmaus Kidz members experience increased self-worth and self-reliance by participating in program-sponsored activities in a positive Christian environment. Furthermore, program participants are motivated and encouraged by one-on-one contact with exemplary mentors from throughout the community.

The lives of many participants have been changed thanks to these interactions, and a number of members remain connected to their mentors throughout life.
