Kids Grow Kentucky (KGK)
Born in 2011, kidsGROWkentucky (KGK) a 501c3 Non-profit Org., has been deemed a success by Kids, Parents, Educators, and people that see giving youth a voice in their community and their own future is a strategy for a better world. Its founder Ed Councill, a product of a broken family, poor support from educational professionals, and the early passing of both parents, had a dream that kids deserve better in order to make their dreams come true.
