Kids First Initiative Career Pathways EXPO Featuring STEAM

Kids First Initiative is committed to providing all children opportunities, despite their socio-economic background, to experience S.T.E.A.M. education. Studies have shown that exposure to S.T.E.A.M. education will not only help increase student engagement, but unlock both creative-critical thinking and innovation within our youth as well. We have some of the best and brightest young minds in the world and we want to help them become productive global citizens. 

This event will be streamed LIVE online for the whole world to see!

Disaster Relief

There are no greater treasures than the highest human qualities such as compassion, courage and hope. Not even tragic accident or disaster can destroy such treasures of the heart.

Just finished delivering bottle water for the Disaster Relief here in Toledo, OH. I met some nice guys from the Cost Guard and Red Cross, now back to Michigan
