It's easy for adults to speculate what the challenges kids face in today's world but if you want to know what kids are up against, talk to the kids.
That's what the leadership for The Vault did recently as they sat down with their student leaders to get their thoughts on what challenges kids face and Michelle Witzke says it was then their goal to decide how The Vault can help the community's youth.
The things the students had to say about their peers were not encouraging. Witzke says things related to depression were the top challenges facing students in Clinton.
Witzke indicates The Vault is blessed to be able to utilize Clinton Police Chief Ben Lowers as a resource as a part of their safety team. She says he has been a great resource to help in understanding the problems youth find themselves in nowadays.
Witzke indicates their team continues to work towards developing programming that can be uplifting to the community's youth and making sure they know The Vault is a resource available to them.
