Mission Statement

The overall mission of KICKSTART KIDS is to change and save children's lives. Resiliency is enhanced through the values and philosophies taught through the Martial Arts.

Description

On August 16, 1990, the Kick Drugs Out of America Foundation (dba KICKSTART KIDS) was formed by Mr. Chuck Norris. Today, our program operates in 43 schools in the Houston, Dallas, Galveston, and Austin areas of Texas. We currently serve over 6,300 of today's youth, making a positive impact in their lives. The purpose of the Foundation's mentoring program is to help provide an alternative to drugs and gang activities related to peer pressure. Specific goals of the program are to encourage students to resolve conflicts productively, avoid participating in gangs, choose a drug-free lifestyle, and remain in high school until they graduate.
