Lapkin describes her company saying, “Children are at risk and parents/caretakers need help to improve communication and strengthen their relationships so that children will feel comfortable opening up at home and at school. We believe HeyKiddo does this well as it takes the best practices of communication and adds accessibility and convenience. Parents are calling our technology “life-changing” and we’re proud to be helping to create a new generation of more resilient, brave, and emotionally healthy kids.”
WomensNet Mini Grant will help HeyKiddo develop critical content like mini-lessons, activities and multimedia offerings to help build the resilience and emotional wellness of children and their grownups. The Mini Grant will also be used to implement new research that will allow Lapkin and team to assess if their content is addressing the needs of underserved communities and in return adjust and adapt the content to ensure that it is inclusive and diverse for all populations.
Applications are currently being reviewed for the $10,000 Amber Grant. You can apply today to be considered.
