Young Daniel’s world changed after he got involved in Bee Me Kidz in St. Stephen.
Before enrolling in the program, the grade 4 lad had poor attendance at school, struggled to make friends, was sullen and withdrawn.
But thanks to United Way donors and the magic of Bee Me Kidz, a free inspirational program for youth and their families, he’s a child transformed.
His face lights up when Ms. Mandy, the “Queen Bee,” walks into the room. He is engaged in the lessons at Bee Me Kidz and he’s a much more enthusiastic boy.
“I’ve seen such a difference in him since he began participating in Bee Me Kidz!” his school principal says. “His attendance has improved, he is positive about the future, he has learned skills for making friends and he is making connections with his teachers.”
