MCC's college for kids has been providing summer activities for area youth for the past 20 years.
"College for Kids is a program for children ages six to 12 years old. We offer about 38 different classes and there is a variety of things that children can choose to do. We have sports classes, we have art classes, science classes; it’s a great way to introduce them to the college campus world and let them come over to MCC and see what we’re all about. Said Joy Smith of MCC.
Just like attending college, classes start on time, so kids won't want to be late.
Joy Smith Says "It’s always the first two weeks in June and the classes start at eight-thirty in the morning and then there's a class that ends at ten and then the second-period class starts at ten-thirty and it ends at twelve."
According to staff, the college for kid’s program has been known to expand children's decision making for future plans.
"These classes are a great way for a child to explore their interest and maybe build on that and hopefully maybe give them a career trajectory, something they want to pursue in their educational life and possibly future career." Said Smith
