In this episode we interview Derrick Stinson of Kickstart Kids. Derrick is a Regional Director with Kickstart Kids and has been with the organization for 26 years... 7 years as a student and 19 as an employee. Kickstart Kids was founded in 1990 by martial artist, actor, and philanthropist Chuck Norris. The organization created a character development program that uses karate to teach life-changing values to middle school and high school students.
Derrick shares with us how the organization teaches so much more than karate, instilling their value curriculum in all of their students. Derrick opens up about how Kickstart kids has shaped his life and has made him the leader and man he is today. Kickstart kids is currently operating in Texas and it is their goal to grow into other states and have even more of an impact.
