When your child joins the program, they start off with a white shirt. We have it set up similar to the karate system. For every 10 lawns cut, they get a new color shirt.Once they cut 10 lawns they get an orange shirt; 20 lawns earns a green shirt , 30 earn a blue shirt, 40 a red shirt and 50 a black shirt.Once they reach 50, they become a lot a black belt at mowing lawns.
We want to show our children (our future) that by helping others they too will receive a sense of accomplishment, self-esteem, moral value and purpose in themselves. The message we want to instill is no matter how young or old, small or tall, and regardless of cultural background, they are capable of whatever they put their mind to. From learning to use a lawn mower to raking leaves, we work to instill a deep sense and appreciation for team work, camaraderie, leadership and listening skills.
