LEARN DO GIVE
WHO SHOULD PARTICIPATE?
KidUnity’s programs are designed for students of different ages who have the interest and maturity to work with peers and civic leaders to address community problems such as homelessness, pollution, and hunger. Apply here!
WHERE IS KIDUNITY BASED?
KidUnity’s founders live on L.A.’s Westside, but use the community as its classroom. Students meet at different local non-profit or civic organization where students engage in exciting hands-on projects. Weekly activities are all within short driving distance from the schools that our students attend.
IS KIDUNITY PART OF A PARTICULAR SCHOOL OR SERVICE AGENCY?
KidUnity is an independent, non-profit organization. We consult with, but are not formally affiliated with a number of local schools and non-profits. Students from all Los Angeles schools are welcome to participate.
WHO LEADS THE PROGRAMS?
Programs are designed and led by KidUnity's Directors. We are assisted by teachers who have expertise in service learning. High school mentors may also provide program leadership support.

OUR COMMUNITY IS OUR CLASSROOM
HOW DOES TRANSPORTATION WORK?
Parents are expected to drop off and pick up their children from the activity site each week. Locations and directions to each week's activities will be provided in advance and on KidUnity's WWW site. Occasionally, students may be transported by KidUnity van to/from a site.
HOW MANY STUDENTS CAN PARTICIPATE? WHAT IS THE COST?
KidUnity will limit group size to a maximum of 12-15 students (depending on the program) to ensure high levels of participation and supervision.
Program fees vary by program. Scholarships are available. In addition, students lead fundraising efforts to benefit a cause or organization they choose during the semester.
