Kids Need a Voice

From bullying and gang violence to substance abuse, children face significant challenges. Team Kids helps youth navigate these obstacles by connecting them to peers and positive role models, and empowering them to become community changemakers. 

By improving how youth view themselves and how community leaders view youth, Team Kids enables children to cultivate self-esteem and avoid high-risk behaviors like drinking, drugs, and violence.

Better Developmental
Outcomes

1 in 6 American children ages 2 to 8 has a diagnosed mental, behavioral, or developmental disorder (CDC). On average, youth only hit 19 of 40 key developmental assets (Search Institute).

In order to thrive, kids need to know that they matter to their peers and adults in their communities. Team Kids promotes a greater sense of connection and self-esteem, which can significantly improve a child’s emotional, social, cognitive, and educational development.
