Children do stuff. They build things. Play with purpose. Make friends and work together. Set goals and clear them. They go places: physically, mentally and spiritually. These life-changing experiences — and the confidence they provide — become bricks in the wall of childhood. These bricks eventually form a foundation that supports children as they embrace opportunity and overcome obstacles.
