Mission Statement

Inspiring kids to give of themselves for the good of the world.

Description

Aaron's Presents is a youth development mentoring program that gives kids in 8th grade and below a unique opportunity to carry out an idea that they come up with that benefits others, providing the means (up to $500 in materials), guidance and logistical help needed.

We strive to make it possible for as many children as possible to experience what it feels like to impact others’ lives for good. We believe that an experience of this type at an early age that is memorable, meaningful, fun and involves authentic human connection can foster empathy, beyond-the-self thinking, self-worth and a sense of empowerment, purpose and connection to others in any child, regardless of circumstance.

In creating this unique type of experience for young children, we are attempting to deepen the
impact and re-envision the concept of "community service" for both the giver and receiver, taking
a new approach to the goal of increasing the above-mentioned qualities, which abundant research
has shown to support numerous positive life outcomes.

To date, we have worked with over 400 children on 163 projects that have adding something helpful and positive to the lives of over 19,000 people in their communities.
