TEAM Kids is a great community partner for Cox Communications. We have a common goal of inspiring children to lead and serve beyond the boundaries of the classroom and become the entrepreneurs of tomorrow. The spirit of volunteerism and community and government partnerships achieved by TEAM Kids is refreshing and commendable. Their efforts have a positive impact on our community and the self-confidence of the children who learn they have the power to make a difference in the world!
TEAM Kids is an amazing program which is forming the next generation of leaders in society TODAY! When I work with schools and other child focused groups within the city of Irvine who have not had the pleasure of working with TEAM Kids yet, this is how I describe the TEAM Kids program;
By empowering children; it inspires their heart, stimulates their mind and motivates their hands to build a stronger community, a brighter future and enhances positivity within themselves and others.
I love the schools that partner with TK and I do everything I can to participate side by side of the children throughout the program.
Team Kids recently came to Lafayette Elementary School, located in Long Beach, CA. TK's commitment and professionalism is second to none. As a law enforcement professional, I was impressed how TK empowered these young children and incorporated public safety into their program. At the same time, it was exciting for me to help facilitate bringing TK to Long Beach and to hopefully further expand it in other schools in the future. This is an amazing program and I would recommend it for any school district.
Team Kids is exactly what this world needs! TK is able to bring the community together and allows everyone to realize their important role in it! It is mobilizing children and building important relationships between them and local police/fire men, school faculty, and areas in need. Volunteering for Team Kids for over 10 years, it has shaped me into the person I am today. I would not be pursuing the career I am now if it were not for Team Kids. I am eternally thankful for Julie Hudash and her selfless staff.
TeamKids brings excitement and professionalism a community. I worked side by side with TeamKids during their 2014 roll-out in Arlington and found the staff to be excellent because as they progress toward an uplifting goal, they always engage and empower the youth they are working to support. Great job!
As a donor to any organization, I view my contributions in terms of an investment. What kind of return am I getting on that particular investment?
Without comparison, I can honestly say that Team Kids not only provides a return of my investment by engaging kids in healthy, positive activities with community leaders, but it provides for an exponential return on my investment by multiplying whatever I have given.
When kids are engaged to raise money or goods and supplies for other NPO's dear to their hearts, then they will carry the benefits of that contribution forward with them for the rest of their lives, feeding their communities and nurturing a society in tremendous need of empathetic and engaged leaders.
And because Team Kids works within our public school system, it offers EVERY child the opportunity to participate in contributing to their own future regardless of their gender, ethnicity or background.
I applaud Team Kids for their innovation, commitment and integrity.
They are essential for a better future that begins today.
Team Kids lives up to delivering the 32-34 of the 40 Developmental Assets the Search Institute prescribes all children to have to grow in a very empowered community. Team Kids has helped kids become little business people, philanthropists, empathetic, compassionate and understanding youth leaders that will become the Difference in their Community and in the World! My 4 kids love Team Kids. It truly brings Adults to remember how it was to be young and see their kids develop through the program and for the Kids to be the Leaders of their generation! Love, Love, Love Team Kids!
glad Team Kids is expanding and coming back to Arlington! all involved are excellent and inspirational!
Team Kids is an absolutely exceptional program. In addition to empowering kids and teaching them that they are powerful, Team Kids connects youth to their community and shows them that no matter how small they are, they can make a difference.
I have had the pleasure to partner with Team Kids for the last three years. As a law enforcement officer who takes child safety seriously, I am blown away at what Team Kids is able to do in five weeks at an elementary school. During those five weeks, students are introduced to the idea that THEY can make a difference in the world, and they do that by helping others. This is not some abstract idea, but realized though weekly challenges where the students write letters to troops overseas, collect food and clothing for homeless children, or hold a carnival where all the proceeds go to a charity THEY choose. I am honored and blessed to stand shoulder to shoulder with the amazing Team Kids' coaches in this endeavor. Years later, I still have former students coming up to me and telling me how meaningful the Team Kids experience was for them.
