Why Launch? Hear from Our Staff!

“I love working with kids and enjoy the company of my co-workers. I just love Launch; it’s a good fit for me!” 

Florence, Preschool Lead Teacher 1

“Jo is grateful for the relationships she can build with the community and is proud of the relationships that are still strong. She is still in contact with the first kindergarteners she taught at Kimball, who are high school seniors this year! Many prior Launch students still carry Launch with them – they remember teachers and specific moments that impacted them positively and have talked with her about how much they feel that all kids should have a Launch program. Some students are even waiting until they turn 18, so they can work at Launch.” 

Jo, Training and Compliance Director (previously a teacher and program director)
