What We Do
Athletes for Kids envisions a community where children of all abilities are
Athletes for Kids serves children in 1st through 9th grades who have special needs and disabilities of all kinds.
We carefully match each child with a qualified high school athlete who commits to mentoring a child for one to three years. Once a mentorship is formed the pair will meet two to four times a month.
Mentor candidates are referred to our program by other AFK Mentors, Coaches, Athletic Directors, Teachers, and Community members. Every applicant must pass a thorough screening and background check before being accepted into our program. Once selected they are required to attend an intense training followed by monthly meetings to receive ongoing support, guidance, and training.
