Kids First offers workshops designed to help children of divorce. The classes are free and are required of all children aged 6-16 whose parents are divorcing in Linn Country. The workshops aim to help kids understand and cope with their parents’ separation and divorce. Children are grouped by age, and there are separate curricula for ages 6-9, 10-13, and 14-16. The educational workshops are interactive and utilize artwork, games, discussions, videos, and role-plays.
Law student volunteers would co-lead the classes, which last 2.5 hours. Volunteer training will be held on October 2 from 6:30-8:00 at the Kids First office in Cedar Rapids (621 4th Avenue SE). Interested students should email Laura Ebinger at firstname.lastname@example.org.
