We have numerous opportunities for kids to get involved and to have fun at the same time. As a student, you can get involved in Kids Helping Kids in a variety of ways. After attending an orientation meeting, you can choose to volunteer at any of our events when you can fit them in your schedule or join our ambassador team!
Every project is youth initiated, managed, and led. Through this process youth learn about the power that each person has to make an impact not only in the world but also in the lives of other children. Through this unique partnership, kids will learn skills that help them achieve their goals and make sound decisions.
By developing leadership and social responsibility, we instill critical knowledge; skills and empathy needed to enable the next generation to flourish. Membership is free and KHK has had over 2,000 kids from 117 schools in our program since 2009.
Our Kids Helping Kids ambassador program allows students to take their passion and turn it into action to help others. Throughout the progress of planning, initiating, and running projects, kids simultaneously develop a multitude of leadership skills: Working with others that have differing views, communicating and initiating ideas, speaking in front of a group, project planning, reflecting and making needed changes, delegating, problem solving, developing empathy, having the confidence to take action and enlisting and enrolling others to help you to highlight a few. Come join our team of kids from schools all around Fairfield County to make not only an impact on the community but on yourself as well! As an ambassador, you become a special part of a larger group that is out to make a difference.
