A Message from C4K

Dear C4K Family,

We have been testing out a few pilot programs over the last week including recurring workshops and the distribution of our first Maker Kits. We have been learning a lot about how to best translate C4K’s model of mentoring and engagement to online platforms and can’t wait to share what the Members have been making.

We miss you!  Stay safe and in touch.

Sincerely,
Kala, Tricia, Jill, and Colin
