Kidizens' Young Mayors
Kidizens inspires students to become good citizens and future leaders, one LEGO brick at a time. The Kidizens Summer Program includes intensive action and excitement-packed sessions, where children create their own small civilization built with LEGOs and serve as Co-Mayors for a week. The Co-Mayors manage the economy, the residents and their needs, city departments and services and deal with unexpected problems and situations in an age-appropriate manner. In a fast-paced dynamic environment, the kids develop leadership and interpersonal skills while dealing with natural disasters, resident problems and financial crises.
This is a rare opportunity for kids to role play as responsible leaders in addition to wearing many other hats – think out of the box and on their feet, problem solve and come to decisions in a fast, action-packed, exciting environment. They also learn how to develop a public policy platform and campaign as well as address residents through speeches against a real opponent.
