Through our protege program, The Kids Helping Kids seniors and juniors dedicate time to mentoring elementary students. We take this time to show children how to be leaders and give back to the community. This program enriches the lives of the children we mentor and provides the Kids Helping Kids leaders with an opportunity to share skills through knowledge, developmental conversations, experience, guidance, and role modeling. Our protege program allows mentors and mentees to build a two-way relationship for mutual learning and growth.
Our tutoring program allows mentors and mentees one-on-one time for mutual learning. Kids Helping Kids students help elementary school children with their academics through this program. They get the chance outside of the typical school day to receive additional academic assistance. Mentees obtain time with mentors whose immediate attention is aiding them in furthering their intellectual growth.
The Garden Project allows Elementary school children to develop a better understanding of both nature and business. We provide the space, dirt, seeds, and plants to grow their own vegetables at their school. Through this, children will develop a better understanding of where their food comes from. After the crops grow, the kids host a farmer's market at their school and learn to appreciate the value of a business. The kids use the funds raised from their markets to purchase books and supplies for their school.
Every year Kids Helping Kids puts on our annual Career Day at Del Campo High School. We invite over 100 professionals from various fields and vocations to come and speak on their profession and what to expect for those who wish to enter it. Career Day allows our high school students to explore their interests and make the right decision when choosing a career.
