Kids Empowering Kids

Connecting homeless families with teens in their community looking to share their talents and time.

Why?

Kids Empowering Kids is an organization that connects children that are homeless or underprivileged with youth in their community looking to share their talents and time. We empower youth on both sides: free access to arts and crafts, music, sports, and tutoring for families that are homeless and an outlet for talented youth looking to volunteer and connect.

How?

Our volunteer and family coordinators connect local teen volunteers with organizations that provide shelter for kids in need. This leverages work that has already been done. 

Who?

KEK is currently available to families at Family Promise Metrowest in Natick, MA. However, we plan to service other shelters in the futures.
