Kars4kids Mentor Program
The Kars4Kids Vision

Kars4Kids‘ vision is to give our children the ability to succeed in life. We focus on educational, mentorship and year-round programs for our children, their families and their communities, looking at the big picture of our children‘s development and the environment they grow up in. We rely on thousands of volunteers to help us change the world, one child at a time.

Whole Family Support

A child is just one part of a whole: his family. At Kars4Kids we understand that helping childrenmeans offering supports and programming for parents and siblings. Outreach and mentoring for all the members of a family is a critical part of our approach. The result: happy, healthy children who are motivated to reach their fullest potential.

Just Chillin'

Kars4kids‘ flagship afterschool program for kids, Chill Zone, is a safe place for children to be in the hours after school and on weekends. Here they enjoy programs developed with them in mind for help with homework, structured fun, and social development. Prizes, games, and smiles keep kids coming back for more.
