KidWorks recognizes that education is the great equalizer and that all children deserve the opportunity and support to succeed in their education regardless of the neighborhood in which they grow up. Serving some of Orange County’s most under-resourced neighborhoods, our programs empower students on their journey from Pre-K through their college years. We support the entire family

to ensure student success, and the outcome is self-reliant young adults, equipped for life and career, who are making a difference and giving back to their community.

In addition to academic support, KidWorks provides students of all ages with a safe environment, inspiring relationships, and a menu of resources needed to help them flourish and reach their full potential. It’s working — for the past five years, 100% of KidWorks high school seniors graduated on-time and continued to college. The majority of our first-year college students enrolled in the KidWorks College Success Initiative plan to return to college/university for a second year.

Please join us in supporting these deserving OC students on their journey from Pre-K through their college years!


Restoring at-risk neighborhoods…

one life at a time.
