Soar to the Carnegie Science Center for Kites for Kids on May 11
Event Raises Awareness of Foster Care and Child Abuse Prevention
PITTSBURGH, April 26, 2019 ― Carnegie Science Center teams up with KidsVoice, a leader among Allegheny County child advocacy organizations, to celebrate Kites for Kids on
Sat., May 11. From 10 am–5 pm, visitors soar through hands-on demonstrations featuring games, crafts, and other kite-flying themed activities.
In addition, the Science Center will be adorned with hundreds of client-decorated kites to symbolize hope, a happy childhood, and a chance to soar.
Included with general admission, special activities include:
KidsVoice advocates for 3,000 children each year in courtrooms, classrooms, and everywhere a child’s voice should be heard – including beyond the traditional child welfare and juvenile court arenas. KidsVoice advocates for clients to address legal issues across the entire range of physical, medical, educational, housing, brain- and language-development needs that arise for children from birth to age 21. In 2014, KidsVoice expanded its mission by making legal advocacy services available to former foster care youth through age 24 – an ambitious and unique approach to helping children more successfully transition out of foster care.
