Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, & Pictionary At Kidzz Advisory Board Meeting & Kids Chat Game Night
Kidzz Helping Kidzz believes that racism and discrimination of any kind undermines the health of individuals, families and communities.
The kids from our Advisory Board reviewed the definitions of diversity, equity and inclusion and reflected on how we as a nonprofit organization can reflect these values in our day-to-day work helping other kids in need.
Next month Aaliyah will be joining our meeting to discuss her work relative to diversity, equity and inclusion in Kitsap County.
Aaliyah has been a member of our Advisory Board for five years and brings great knowledge and skill to this important conversation.
Our Advisory Board of Kids also worked on their video this evening. This video will feature the kids talking about their work and why they love helping other kids in need.
As a youth-led nonprofit, charity organization run by volunteers, our hope is that the video can spread the word about how our Advisory Board of kids are making a difference in the lives of other kids and families.
With masks restrictions lifting and COVID rates dropping, the kids would like to restart our program with homeless youth at Coffee Oasis and our literacy program at Barnes & Noble.
We will also continue our partnership with the Bremerton Backpack Brigade.
Stay tuned for an update on our important work!
Kids Chat Game Night Playing Pictionary
Following the Advisory Board meeting, we started our monthly Kids Chat program.
Kids Chat is a program for any kid aged 10 - 15 years old, to come together to talk about topics of importance (determined by the kids).
This program started during our COVID “lockdown” as a way to bridge socialization and friendship during a time of increased isolation for kids all over the country.
Although COVID restrictions have lessened, the program continues and the kids love it, especially on game night.
Tonight the kids played the family entertainment favorite, Pictionary.
Pictionary is a great family game night game that involves being creative and imaginative.
The kids were divided into two teams and then selected one person to be the “picturist”.
The “picturist” is the person who attempts to illustrate the word identified on the card using the whiteboard.
Everyone else on the team tries to guess the word before the time runs out.
Players on the team take turns acting as the “picturist”.
The kids had a wonderful time.
Some of the hardest cards to guess included “gym”, “roadrunner”, and “man on the moon”.
Everyone had a blast and ate lots of popcorn and brownies.
Kids Chat meets the second Saturday of each month from 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM.
Please join us next month for Charades!
If you have a kid between the ages 10-17 (or are one yourself), please contact us here to get more information about our Kids Chat game night.
