Play associated audio

Kids of Honor is an incentive program that attempts to reach local struggling youth in the lower counties of Maryland’s Eastern Shore, and help them through to high school graduation. The organization uses a three-tier program to help students graduate from high school. First, Kids of Honor partners with existing youth-based groups in the community and works to encourage and celebrate students making positive decisions and exhibiting good behavior. Successful students join the second tier of the program, and experience educational and community service activities alongside family members and peers. When the students reach high school, Kids of Honor programming helps them focus on college exploration, job readiness and personal growth.
