Youth today face difficult and sometimes life-threatening decisions. With the generous support of individual, corporate and foundation donors, Kids Now has been able to maintain and expand our group mentoring programs to more than 11,000 grades 7 and 8 students since 1999., empowering them to believe in themselves and make positive choices so they can reach their full potential
But our success is also our greatest challenge and the demand for our programs is greater than our capacity to deliver. We have many schools now waiting to deliver the program and even in schools where the program is offered, there are waiting lists of students who want to get in. We need your support so we can mentor more youth. Together, we can give youth the power to believe.
MAKE A TANGIBLE DIFFERENCE… NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME
Support our charity that helps youth to create change and make meaningful connections. Be recognized as a community builder. Play an active role in inspiring tomorrow’s leaders. It’s all part of being a Kids Now sponsor.
Kids Now is there at the time that susceptibility to peer pressure increases – during early adolescence. The programs are aimed at grades 7 & 8, the ideal window of opportunity to teach youth key life skills they need to avoid dropping out of high school and endangering their future income and success.
SUPPORT RESOURCE-POOR NEIGHBOURHOODS
Many schools and communities lack the financial support and infrastructure to offer youth-development programs. Your support makes a real and meaningful difference by funding much-needed programs in under-served communities.
HELP KIDS LEARN TO SAY NO TO PEER PRESSURE
Influenced by peers and media, youth often fall prey to the lure of gangs, drugs and crime. Your support allows kids to access caring role models and practical tools that help them make positive choices.
HELP KIDS DEVELOP THEIR LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL
Today’s disenfranchised youth is tomorrow’s success story. Your support bridges the gap between “lost” and “leader.”
DON’T LET OUR YOUTH ‘FALL BETWEEN THE CRACKS’
Ages 6-12 are known as the “forgotten years of childhood,” seldom receiving public funding in comparison to early childhood or the teen years. Your support shines a spotlight on this issue and addresses critical funding shortfalls for youth development programs.
SUPPORT YOUTH IN YOUR COMMUNITY
Make a difference in your own backyard by supporting a program that positively impacts local youth, families, and schools.
