Meet the Bus

Get on the Team Kids Bus and empower our children to change the world!



Wait until you meet Team Kids’ one of a kind mascot that travels to schools and community events to inspire kids to serve! The Team Kids Bus is a 1963 Ford B500 school bus. This bus first served as a Navy Service Ambulance, before carting kids to school in Montana for 30 years.



Team Kids Advisory Council Member Mike Cupps purchased our bus as a gift. The bus was originally bright green, before Maaco of Lake Forest stripped her down and painted her a shiny Team Kids’ navy blue. Then the Senior Design Team at Oakley designed the retro style of the Team Kids Bus!



Today, she proudly serves to build awareness for Team Kids programs, which empower our youngest citizens to become responsible and resilient.



Team Kids is the first-of-its-kind youth development organization, based out of Orange County, California and delivers its programs in Orange County, Los Angeles and Arlington, VA. Team Kids builds a powerful bridge between our public schools and community.



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.”
