Kids In The Spotlight (KITS) is a non-profit organization that provides motivational training in film for foster children and youth (ages 11-19). KITS works with Foster Group Home Agencies around Los Angeles County and provides services to two-four group homes per year. Tige Charity, who founded KITS in 2009, has been the heart and soul of this initiative and is supported by an active Board of Directors.
KITS includes two main activities:
The most important service of KITS is toward the underprivileged youth, which, unfortunately, abounds in LA County. These are children and youths that lack the opportunities of those in normal family situations. The majority of them have psychological and behavioral issues, as well as incomplete education. Only 3% or less graduate from college. And yet, these are youngsters who are forced to mature, think, and feel at an intensity that is rare. KITS, in association with the foster agencies, works on offering them a safe platform where they may understand the value and uniqueness of their stories, feel free to express them along with their peers, and, through the creative process, heal, develop self-esteem and acquire vocational skills.
