What is Kids Connect?

Kenya Kids Connect ProjectKids Connect is an initiative of World Connect that uses the organization's international development work as a platform for student learning and development. Kids Connect promotes global awareness in young Americans, enhances cross-cultural communication
and understanding, and inspires kids and teens to become directly involved in international, philanthropic, and community service work. World Connect has worked in more than 20 schools in Massachusetts, Connecticut, New York, Nevada, Washington, D.C. and Rhode Island. Participating students pick a region of the world and specific projects and then coordinate with World Connect staff to explore these interest areas in unique and creative ways. In the process, students develop a greater understanding of geography, languages, culture and socio-economic issues, as well as a deep appreciation for core philanthropic principles. Students gain meaningful and hands on experience by participating in World Connect's grant making process and project evaluation. Students report that participating in World Connect's Kids Connect program has increased their knowledge of the developing world as well as their desire to lead lives of service. Check out the examples below of past Kids Connect projects.
