Getting Started

The first step in starting your own KITS program is a consultation with us. We love to talk with potential new partners to get to know the particular needs of your children and families. We can help you determine which of our programs might be the best fit and we can estimate costs, depending on which particular program you want to run and for how many students and/or families. We will also discuss your needs for support with hiring, recruitment, and other logistics. This initial consultation will help us to tailor your implementation so that you will have a successful and sustainable KITS program!
