Are you looking for something your kids can do this summer? How about College for Kids at MCC?

Two of the Metropolitan Community College campuses, MCC-Longview in Lee’s Summit and MCC-Maple Woods in the Northland, offer College for Kids, a program that provides half-day and full-day classes in June and July (with no classes the week of July 4th). These classes are designed to offer fun learning opportunities to children between the ages of 4 and 15.

IMG_2405Amy Corkern, an instructor on the MCC-Longview campus, was featured June 13 on the KCTV-5 show “Better KC,” where she talked about her class to help teens create vision boards.

Corkern says vision boards aren’t just photos glued to a poster board. They’re intricately chosen images of your deepest desires and dreams. They’re a compilation of quotes, imagery and objects that all come together to specifically show you exactly where your life can be if you stay determined and motivated — specific goals get specific results, Corkern says.
