Team Kids Mission is to empower children to make a difference in the world.
Team Kids is a non-profit organization founded in Irvine in 2001 and we run a five-week program called the Team Kids Challenge currently in over 35 elementary schools throughout Southern California, Arlington, VA, and New York.
During the flagship, award-winning Team Kids Challenge, every student is invited to work alongside our public safety partners and Team Kids coaches to address real-world issues, such as homelessness, hunger, and the environment. In helping others, children increase their sense of self-efficacy as they learn they can impact real social issues, regardless of age or socioeconomic status. Strengthening the positive assets of our youngest citizens makes them a powerful community resource and helps protect against harmful behaviors, such as substance abuse, gang involvement and other delinquent activity. Team Kids nurtures the innate compassion of our youth to empower capable, resilient leaders and philanthropists.
