Measurable ResultsRecords of teens are kept and documented:

  • The number of teens referred to us each year.           
  • The number of hours each teen completes each month and what tasks they perform.
  • Each teen completes 16 hours each month, a form is submitted to their AYAP case manager, who in turn submits a request for the $50.00 incentive.
  • KALD monitors who supervises teens volunteering for other not-profits and their hours.
  • KALD tracks the number of children in foster care and respite care that visit the new animal program location for recreational animal interaction.

Case managers have continually praised the Dreams in Motion program, because it is beneficial and they continue to refer teens each year.
