"I have had the privilege of working with Kim Klingler for a few years now. Kim has a unique gift for bringing out hidden worlds buried in people, youth particularly. She has the ability to connect and instill passion to a room full of people within seconds. She is captivating, brilliant, knowledgable and purpose driven. Her teachings have brought tremendous meaning and hope back into my life. I sincerely hope you have the chance to work with her, on a one to one level because the wisdom and knowledge that she has offered me has truly transformed my life and thinking."
"It’s rare that one would come across a being that has the ferocity of a lion, the heart of a mother, the endurance of a warrior, the truth of a sage and the eternal energetic spirit of a child. That one being is Kim Klingler. While it seems the world is concocted of problem after problem, Kim exists in a world that is engineered purely from answers. Where others see dilemma and complication, Kim seeks true evolution and is equipped with a constant thirst for solutions. She has a prodigious instinct when it comes to youth development. In an uncanny method unlike any other, she hones in on the child’s genuine being. All the limitations, boundaries, and expectations that come with being a minor dissolve and puddle onto the floor. Kim has the ability to see our youth’s true value and amplify their potential far beyond what is expected from them because of their age. In the past five years of our work together, I have seen every being spanning from new-to-life to the elderly relating to Kim in an ageless and empowered atmosphere that she creates with her candid and honest approach. She has a true love for life and all beings that possess life. She thinks, feels, engineers, and acts with every cell available in her body. While her impressive resume speaks for itself, it is not what defines Kim. She supersedes roles and regulations as she hurls herself towards every challenge within her path. Her scope is amphibious in nature weaving throughout a diverse array of terrains and realms with no end in sight. She is unstoppable.
Kim Klinger is an asset to our youth that shouldn’t be taken lightly. With her limitless vision, abundant talent and compassion-soaked heart, our youth have the ability to uncover their true selves: their happiness, talents, passions, and ultimately what makes them feel ALIVE."
"I love Mrs Kim she is the most awesome lady in the world. Mrs Kim always teached me that my autism doesn't stop me from doing what I want to do that I own my autism it doesn't own me. Mrs Kim showed me how I can be an awesome leader for lots of other kids by showing them my strength and that if we all work together we can achieve anything and change the world. Mrs Kim has helped me and loads of my friends that are now my family because of her, we love her millions."
"Kim is an amazing woman that has impacted youth on so many levels. I believe the reasons why Kim is great with kids is because she doesn't treat them like kids, she doesn't talk down to them she listens to all of their ideas and problems she teaches them that they can accomplish anything that nothing is out of their reach. As a mother of a child with Disabilities she's been an angel to my son, he has gone from not believing in himself to believing in himself and to interacting with other children more, even taking part in projects. She really has made such a difference in the youth it's a beautiful thing to see, I mean she has brought kids together from all countries, religions and ages and had created a wonder family with them. We need more women in world like Kim to help are children to become all that they can be and want to be."
I’ve had the good fortune to encounter a fierce, unique and compassionate woman five years ago. Her name is Paula Earl. Not only has she been more than my mentor and colleague, she is a powerful motivator and true role model for adults and youth alike. Paula’s level of leadership, mentorship & dedication are unmatched and she has the ability to inspire with a flair I’ve never seen before. I have experienced firsthand Paula’s capacity to get people – of all ages - to break out of their shell, to help them realize their own potential. She strives to create an environment where injustice has no place, where the youth can flourish and fulfill their dreams, a community full of possibilities! Paula has a ferocious love for life, for being alive and has the ability to pass this on to others. Her energy, knowledge, vision and passion are something that can never be replaced. She has been a true friend and guru to my daughter and me. She taught my daughter that there does not have to be limitations, that through humanity, innovation and imagination anything can be done. Paula is a bona fide change maker in a world where people don’t always take the youth seriously; she enables youth to understand their unique talents and guides them towards self-realization. There are individuals that you meet in your life that are exceptional; that you know will always be there for you. Paula is one of those people.
