Athletes For Kids Is Not Just About Sports

IMPACTING LIVES

one mentorship at a time

Our program is focused upon building supportive, mentoring relationships between high school athletes and children who have disabilities and special needs of all kinds.

AFK AWARDED BECU GRANT

On December 5th BECU announced the winners of the People Helping People Awards a recognition of organizations who devote their time helping others.

We are so grateful to LHS alumni mentor Taylor who flew in just to be at the event and for nominating us and sharing her inspiring story. Thank you to our supportive community who voted for our video, we are proud to say that AFK was awarded $19,400 that will continue to impact the lives of children with special needs and the high school athletes who mentor them.

OUR VALUES

EVERY CHILD SHOULD EXPERIENCE THE GIFT OF FRIENDSHIP

Mentoring Children

Mentoring Children

Athletes For Kids serves children in 1st through 12th grade who have a recognized disability or special need. We carefully match each child with a qualified student athlete who commits to mentoring a child for one to three years.

Youth Development

Youth Development

Our goal is to assist mentors in developing strong values and character so they become leaders, role models, game-changers, and effective contributors to society. We do this by providing an intensive new mentor training, followed by monthly meetings where they receive ongoing training and support.

Community engagement

Community Engagement

Athletes For Kids provides opportunities for youth and adult members of the community to participate in, volunteer at, or attend safe and inclusive local events. Our goal is to foster healthy communities, where acceptance and inclusion of youth with all abilities is a priority.
