Up To The Challenge 

At the beginning of the semester, our Afterschool Teachers were presented with a challenge: to recruit their friends to apply for a position at Side by Side Kids. With each friend we ended up hiring, they would win a gift card.

Ever up to the challenge, Anna-Claire Taylor, an Afterschool Teacher at our Brown/Barrington campus, decided to share this job opportunity with two of her friends, Kendrah and Emily.

“Anna-Claire told me how much she loved Side by Side Kids and how much she enjoyed doing ministry with the program,” recalls Kendrah. “I also have a heart for ministry and children, so I applied!”

Eventually, both Kendrah and Emily applied to be Afterschool Teachers with Side by Side Kids... And they were both hired!

“I have loved it so much! It is so fulfilling to serve my class and encourage them to follow Christ at such a young age!”

Congratulations Anna-Claire for winning not one, but TWO gift cards! Most importantly though, thank you for sharing your awesome friends with us and bringing them along in our mission to “encourage hearts and inspire minds."

Kendrah and Emily, welcome to the Side by Side Kids family!
