About Women & Kids Learning Together Summer Camp
Warren County and neighboring counties are in need of projects and efforts that serve low-income women and their children. Women & Kids Learning Together Summer Camp is the only such project in Kentucky. Overall, Kentucky ranks as the 3rd worst state for women, according to a 2004 report by the Institute for Women’s Policy Research. The 2002 Governor's Task Force on the Economic Status of Kentucky's Women also found that Kentucky ranks 47th in measures of women's economic and social autonomy, ranks 49th in the percentage of women with four or more years of college, and ranks 50th in health and well-being of its women. It is evident from these numbers that women in this area need assistance and encouragement.

WKLT focuses on education, the arts, and physical and emotional wellness, in order to help improve the lives of low-income and under-educated women in the area. Through classes, workshops, and teambuilding activities, these women will be better prepared for long-term education and employment. They will participate in activities that allow them to explore self-expression and engage in new experiences.

The kids, too portion of the program will encourage the participants' children to be creative and to express themselves in positive and healthy ways. The children will participate in art, drama, dance, and creative writing activities led by Western students. This aspect of the program supports WKU's efforts to encourage active student learning and community engagement.

WKLT is free for participants.

Going to Burning Man is true...I have applied and I am GOING to Burning Man.
I am brainstorming a performance, at this point, that will "mingle" with other works.
I will of course "do something" while I am there...I promised Don Evans.
