All interns kicked off the 2021 summer with a final day of preparation at Jackson Healthcare, where they practiced their "elevator pitch", participated in a series of mock interviews with JHC professionals and sat for their professional head shots. Everyone reported to work on Monday, June 7, to begin their three-week internships. We are grateful to Jackson Healthcare for hosting us for the day of final preparation.

Ending Generational Incarceration
Kidz2Leaders provides stability, opportunity and a Christian community for children of inmates to break the cycle of incarceration.
Having a parent in prison is listed as one of the top Adverse Childhood Experiences, according to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC). Our decade-long continuum of programming guides these children toward a life of self-sufficiency, joy, and success at no cost to their families.
Nearly 200,000 children in Georgia have an incarcerated parent.
Up to 70 percent of children of inmates may one day become incarcerated.
Georgia’s prison expenditures total more than $1 billion annually.
Ninety-nine percent of Kidz2Leaders graduates are living free from state or federal incarceration.
In 2019, more than 425 volunteers gave a total of 22,500 volunteer hours to Kidz2Leaders to directly serve 360 children and family members. Since 1999, our programs have impacted more than 1,300 campers, siblings, parents, guardians, and relatives.
Young adults who complete our programs can lead independent lives, avoid incarceration, and contribute back to their communities through leadership and volunteerism.Support K2L
