About K-Kids

Young leaders helping others

In K-Kids clubs worldwide, more than 36,000 children are learning leadership through service. They're taking on the responsibility of running a K-Kids club as they plan and participate in community service projects. They assist the elderly with chores or organize community food drives.They serve their schools, raising funds for sports equipment and extracurricular activities. 

In big and small ways, they're changing the world around them. But the most significant change happens in the kids themselves.

"Being a K-Kids means a lot to me. I learned that people need help out there more than people think. That's why there are K-Kids!" 

--Haley, Coats Elementary School K-Kids Club
