What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Count on Kids, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, is not only helping the kids in the community but all those in need across the globe. Our mission is to create tomorrow’s socially conscious leaders - individuals that will make a positive difference in the world. Our journey with children starts from a young age, encouraging them to go from a “me” perspective to a “we” perspective and follows them into young adulthood where we guide them in crafting their own community improvement projects.

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Our journey with children starts from a young age, encouraging them to go from a “me” perspective to a “we” perspective and follows them into young adulthood where we guide them in crafting their own community improvement projects. We offer programs that take a child from participating in Count on Kids community service projects to a young adult who is creating and then facilitating these wonderful community projects.

We will partner with local experts in leadership development and carefully craft a program and toolkit for use by our young adults participating in our leadership programs. We will then partner with key community organizations to hold events in the area where young children and their families can get exposed to improving their communities and beyond.

We have a highly capable board consisting of executives in the private and public sector. We also have pre-existing relationships with dozens of other local and global nonprofits.

We have seen rapid increase in community engagement with some events resulting in a 96% registered attendance rate. We have expanded our partner base to include numerous seniors centers and community foundations. We increased our presence in local schools by 83%. The feedback we receive from caregivers on the impact on their youth participants is extremely promising and positive.

Collectively, we;
We engaged 1879 participants at our events
1070 adults
809 youth
Our participants completed 2,098 volunteer hours
1,407 youth volunteer hours!
Count on Kids held events where 44 service projects were completed that benefitted 26 different organizations
We have close to 600 contacts registered to receive our newsletters and marketing communication
