A Zip Code Should Not Determine A Child’s Future

KidWorks makes an 18-year commitment to support students and their parents by providing academic enrichment, leadership and character development to ensure students graduate with a degree and are equipped to succeed in the workforce.  

We are developing leaders who want to make a difference in their community.
