Summer Staff

Each Summer Session is led by a Kid Krazy teacher. In addition, Kid Krazy employs youth from our local non-profit organization, Hanac, as teacher aids. Hanac's mission is "to provide the education, vocational training and support services to enable everyone to reach their full potential." For more information on Hanac, go to their website… www.hanac.org

As any staff member at Kid Krazy, all Hanac youths are interviewed by the Education Director/Assistant before granted permission for employment. This is to ensure that the goals, standards, and expectations set by Kid Krazy can be met by the summer aids. In addition, all teacher aids are supervised at all times by Kid Krazy staff.
