We have seen decreases in behavior; we have seen children speak their truths in letters to Miss Kendra and conversations on the carpet. To watch their faces after they speak their truths is like watching someone who has been trying to carry a large weight on their shoulders for a long time finally be able to put it down.

Miss Kendra Programs provide a way for our students to give voice to their worries, and know our school is a safe place in which they could receive support.

The best part of the Miss Kendra Programs is knowing that through the program we create opportunities for kids to share their stories and give them opportunities to talk about things that they may not otherwise have the chance to talk about.

I have seen the worries melt off kids when they are able to write them down and the joy they experience getting a letter in return. Even my students who do not write letters love to hear who got a letter and support them, which does not happen often with my kiddos.

It is a very informative and open program with a great amount of resources supporting it. It has a great structure, a baseline to go off of, and fun activities for the students.
