What is Kids Share Workshops?
Is a not-for-profit arts enrichment program that recognizes each child as a vibrant and creative individual, and strives to awaken the author and artist inside each of them. Kids Share Workshops connects volunteers from professional backgrounds to youth from around the world through the co-creation of visual and literary art, with team building principles and cross-cultural understanding at the heart of its curriculum.
Each workshop is uniquely designed for the community in which it will take place. In the past, Kids Share Workshops has incorporated a mix of any of the following components into its curriculum: art therapy, writing, publishing, nutrition, recycling, exploration, cross-cultural sharing, technology, volunteer and student exchanges. We work with professional volunteers who bring unique and varied skill sets to our workshops.
Workshops are funded by; grants, foundations, donations, and fundraising merchandise. Thank you for your support.

Additionally, we have worked closely with other non-profit organizations, corporations, and their staff to facilitate successful workshops worldwide. We are proud to have received the 2010 United States Board on Books for Young Peoples Award in Washington, D.C.!
Our first book, Kids Share: Tibetan and Vermont Children’s Narratives was proudly placed in the Library of Congress.
Kids Share Workshops is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit art and literacy enrichment program.
Our program is organized and facilitated by Founder, Kristina Applegate and a team of volunteer professionals and community organizations in each new community, who work with us to tailor each workshop to its specific location and needs. These volunteers are usually recruited directly from the host community.
