Mission:
Success for Kids (SFK) is an international nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering at-risk children with the skills and tools they need to reach their full potential. These are the tools that have been proven components of personal and academic success:

*self-awareness

*social and emotional intelligence

*problem solving skills

*interpersonal strength

*the confidence and wisdom to make smart choices

*the techniques to be self-reliant and well-adjusted

*the desire to be connected and giving to the people around us

*the resiliency to meet all of life’s challenges and obstacles

*the ability to foresee the consequence of our behavior

SFK empowers children to make the best choices that they can, to make smart, purposeful decisions that result in their desired outcomes, and ultimately to understand that they are the writers of their own life stories. Our vision is for every child to understand these universal values and reach their full potential, and our mission is to deliver them through fun, interactive, educational programs to as many children as possible.

SFK has served over 60,000 children in 13 locations worldwide. Our programs include free year-long courses in low-income public elementary schools, after school classes, programs designed specifically for teenagers, ongoing training with prison inmates, and the Kids Creating Peace program in Israel, which uses the SFK curriculum to create dialogue, understanding, and unity between previously alienated Arab and Israeli students.

I got to know SFK's teacher's training program in 2010. I spent four days with the most amazing people I've ever met. Those four days, I must say, totally changed my life! I hope I will have the opportunity to volunteer next year... more »

All of us, especially kids, see the world through the paradigm we learn from our family, and believe that paradigm is the ultimate TRUTH, the one and only way to think and function in the world. SFK gives kids an alternate perspective, and therefore a choice in how they can conduct themselves and ... more »
