Studies have shown that children who volunteer from an early age adopt healthy lifestyle choices, learn life skills and continue to volunteer into adulthood.
Kids Care Clubs members begin volunteering as early as pre-school, with projects designed for ages five through thirteen years old. Kids Care Clubs provides all the information and resources you need to get involved and stay committed. Staff is available by email or phone to give you personal assistance on forming a club, selecting issues, or connecting with agencies.
What is a Kids Care Club?
Kids Care Clubs are groups of young people who work together to help others in their communities and around the world. Clubs are formed in schools, faith based organizations and community community-based organizations, such as volunteer centers. Today there are more than 1,800 registered Clubs and 80,000 kids in the United States and countries including Australia, Canada, China, and Nepal.
What kind of support do Kids Care Clubs get?
Kids Care Clubs posts different service projects each month. These projects include step-by-step instructions, compassion and issues education, meeting activities, additional resources related to the project and information on possible partners. These projects are centered on issues such as literacy, hunger, poverty, the sick, and the elderly or seasons of service such as Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, Earth Day and Veterans Day.
