What We Do

Empowering Youth. Empowering Communities.


Team Kids implements innovative school-based and community-wide service-learning programs for children, to inspire youth as positive change agents.

The Team Kids Challenge Program is a nationally-recognized, innovative school-based educational service program that empowers students as community leaders, as they work alongside police, firefighters, and Team Kids staff to help others.

Through participating in programs, or volunteering in community events, Team Kids’ participants develop the values and skills that enable them to make positive choices in their own lives, while making a difference in the lives of others.


Today in Orange County, most of the work being done in health and human services focuses, appropriately, on the immediate needs of the disadvantaged. Team Kids takes a different approach, directing their energies toward our youth, teaching them the value and power of working together to solve community issues. In so doing, they are developing the philanthropists of the future and creating systematic change in our community.”

Dan Lubeck, Team Kids Board Member

I became a Founding Team Kids Board Member in 2004, after witnessing the leadership and compassion being developed in the students participating in the Team Kids Challenge Program. Team Kids engenders a culture where it is everyone’s right, regardless of age, to be a powerful agent for change.”

Bethany LaFlam, Team Kids Board Member

Team Kids, to me, is an antidote to entitlement and one great way to create the responsible citizens we all want as future leaders.”
