Amazing Kids! ( www.amazing-kids.org) is dedicated to inspiring excellence in children. We base this mission on the belief that every child has the potential to be "amazing" in her or his own way. We believe it is through the realization of this potential that children will be able to live more productive and satisfying lives.
Amazing Kids! ( www.amazing-kids.org) is a children's educational non-profit organization and website dedicated to helping kids realize their amazing potential and launch their dreams.
Our programs include:
the "Amazing Kids! of the Month" awards (we accept ongoing nominations of amazing kids from anyone!)
an outlet for kids to showcase their creative work in our Amazing Kids! Online Magazine: mag.amazing-kids.org
a traditional letter writing PenPals program: amazing-kids.org/get-involved/amazing-kids-penpals-program/
creative contests for kids ages 5-14
Amazing Kids! seeks to improve the lives of children through:
uncovering the amazing potential within each child
fostering good literacy and communication skills for a solid foundation for success
providing them with the tools to nurture their unique talents
inspiring them to pursue excellence in their endeavors and to become lifelong achievers
I have worked with Amazing Kids! Magazine for the last four years. I have found the experience very rewarding as you get to work directly with the founder, a wonderful mentor for all volunteers on staff. She has taught me so much in dealing with adults, corporations and the staff. Her effective communication skills not only clearly direct everyone, but motivate them to do their best as well. She guides you closely when needed but also lets you on your own when you have proven your abilities. My work with the magazine has increased my writing ability, ability to work with others, and my ability as a team player. The organization works well as a team and we are well informed on the direction of the work. Working with the children for these past years, I have seen them be inspired by the magazine, the contests, and the penpal program to become better writers, readers and visionaries. Volunteering here will allow you to have a major impact on literacy worldwide. Please join the team!
