POWER UP The Love and Peas Foundation is having two FREE children's leadership classes April 22nd and 29th at the Civic Center in Kona. Let's change the future of our kids! Power Up Registration The foundation has created a class (power up)to empower undeserved children ages 8-12 because this age group is at a developmental pinnacle when children start to recognize their differences and act them out through things like bullying, low self-esteem, etc.. This one day class will be a unique opportunity for these children to learn about: -leadership of self and others -learn tools to help manage stress -learn how to work as a team -learn how to adapt more easily to their environment -learn how to create quality relationships -learn how to give back to their community -learn about self-esteem and how to combat peer pressure -learn how to ask for and receive support -learn how to set and achieve goals -learn that there are alternative ways to look at life -and learn how to become more solution oriented.
The Love and Peas Foundation will continue to have a relationship with the children that complete the class so that they can be a resource to them moving forward, mentoring these kids, being an adult figure in their lives that is not a parent, guardian or teacher. Our intention is to create a safe environment for these children so that they can thrive and seek their utmost potential.
It is a known fact that every individual has a basic urge/desire to accomplish one ultimate “dream”. It is the driving force of their lives and they strive to achieve this-but sometimes they get derailed, either by choice or circumstance. "Through this class we would like to interrupt this from happening so children have a viable alternative. That is the basic tenet under which the Love and Peas Foundation was founded.
