THE KIDUNITY COMMUNITY
MISSION AND HISTORY
KidUnity's mission is to provide children with a stronger connection to their community. We believe that a deeper and more empathic understanding of community will inspire children to solve the most demanding social problems that their generation faces.
KidUnity started as a series of conversations between two dads about the lack of fun, high-quality, and readily-available service learning programs. Exhaustive conversations and research, combined with their respective backgrounds as educator and non-profit executive, resulted in forming a 501(c)(3) non-profit where our simple goal is to engage kids in their community. Kids + Community = KidUnity!
