About Team Kids


Team Kids is a nonprofit organization committed to empowering our children to change the world! Headquartered in Irvine, CA, Team Kids programs have expanded from the west to the east coast with program replication in Arlington, VA.

Team Kids strengthens collaborative partnerships with community stakeholders to share resources and mobilize our youngest citizens for positive community change.

Our staff provides support and training for partners from multiple agencies (government, education, public safety, and business) to deliver award-winning Team Kids’ Programs. Our entrée into the public school system during school hours allows Team Kids to work alongside every child and inspire them to be powerful leaders, entrepreneurs and philanthropists.

It is the shared vision of Team Kids’ Board of Directors, Partners and Staff for the Team Kids Challenge to serve as a national model to inspire all children, in every community, to know they matter and can make a major contribution to our world.

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.”

Team Kids is addressing critical child and community needs today, while also building our next generation of problem solvers.”

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.”
