Program Summary:
AileyCamp/AileyCamp The Group is a well-established, innovative summer and after-school hours youth violence prevention program. The program has a long-term proven record of measurable success, particularly with underserved youth and youth of color. KCFAA uses the arts coupled with intensive personal development curriculum driven by the research-informed, violence prevention, empathy curriculum of the Oakland Men’s Project, “How to stop the violence that tears our lives apart” and creative writing classes in the implementation of AileyCamp/AileyCamp the Group.

KCFAA programming makes constructive learning activities—physical, social and emotional—opportunities for students to form enduring, supportive relationships with adults (educators, parents, family members, guardians). AileyCamp/AileyCamp The Group benefit youth from low-income households in historically undeserved communities identified as hotspots in Jackson County and who experience or are at high risk for experiencing adverse childhood experiences.

AileyCamp/AileyCamp the Group targets middle and high school age youth (11 - 18 years).
