“Special people work with special needs children, and our next group has a unique way to make a perfect match. It’s called Athletes For Kids; they pair high school athletes with special needs students. Who benefits more is up for debate.” – American Graduate host, Soledad O’Brien

Athletes For Kids was featured as a successful youth mentoring organization on a National Public Television Broadcast called American Graduate!

AFK Executive Director Melissa King traveled to New York for the filming, along with student athlete mentor Tomás Cardenas, mentee Zach M., and mentee parent Amy Stotts.
