What Is K.I.D.S.?
Kids In Discovery Of Self (K.I.D.S.) is about discovering yourself, and getting what you need in the process.
It doesn’t matter what background you come from, where you stand in your learning, or whether you have the support of your parents/guardian.
Kids In Discovery Of Self (K.I.D.S.) means you’ll get what you need to explore who you are, explore what areas you want to pursue as your way of life, and explore and determine the values you want to have and live by.
How Does K.I.D.S. Do That?
Kids In Discovery Of Self (K.I.D.S.) is an organization started in 1991 in Atlanta, GA, by Ms. Sherina “Mahasin” Aqeel. She has the mentoring heart for teens and young adults. After many years of being a mentor/semi-parent to youth of this age in life, she saw what was missing for youth that could make a tremendous difference in their transition into independent living.
She has provided those missing elements in K.I.D.S. Those missing elements include: educational mentoring, preventing or dis-engaging involvement with the juvenile court system, providing for support where parents or guardians are unable to provide support, and offering ways for youth to discover which direction they want to go in life next – with a sense of pride, accomplishment, and love for all.
