Mission Statement

Kids Share Workshop’s mission is to inspire and empower youth through job development opportunities and English as a second language, book-building workshops.

Overview:

Kids Share Workshops focuses on helping youth build sustainable job development projects within their community while building a published book together! Focusing on job development, reading, writing, and art skills helps a young person feel empowered about their future. We aim to help create a powerful resume of specialized job development skills shared in a co-created, published book!

Overview:
Kids Share Workshops help disadvantaged youth to work together for creative and sustainable job development opportunities. Within the safety of school grounds and/or community environment, a student-run cooperative can be quickly established, developed, and monitored by volunteer school educators and the Kids Share Workshops team.

The sustainable Kids Share Workshops project kits include carefully designed instructions and tools easily built by youth and adult supervisors. Youth take pride in running the new cooperative project and enjoy the long-term success in bringing a community together while generating income. Meanwhile, they participate in a book-building workshop honing in on their creative skills; reading, writing, and creativity. The end result is a unique published book of their work in the new job development project and information about them. The published book acts as their resume and a reminder of empowerment through teamwork!

Creativity and Play:

Kids Share Workshops encourages partnerships with other youth organizations that have established an existing community center, library, or school. Success comes from working together by adding additional value to a community by incorporating the construction of the new job development project together. In addition to the job development project, traditional Kids Share (1-2 hour daily) book-building (English as a second language) workshops can occur either during school or after school. Each participant will receive their very own published book sharing their job development work contributions as a resume and source of pride.

Funding:

Completing a sustainable, independently youth-run project built from Kids Share Workshops kits comes from the support of professional volunteers, larger nonprofits, corporations, and individual grants. 100% of the cooperative job development profits earned go towards school enrollment costs.
