Our Mission

At Washington Kids Foundation we sincerely believe that all youth deserve the opportunity to achieve their fullest potential. We inspire youth to live with purpose, passion and commitment to build the necessary skills to overcome challenges and experience sustained success. Our programs provide a platform for youth to compete, connect and care for themselves and others.

Our Philosophy

Washington Kids Foundation is a registered charity that relies on a team of dedicated, hands on founders, partners, donors and volunteers to make magic happen.

Our Life Pillars philosophy – made up of Fit For Life, Lead For Life and Learn For Life elements, is designed to give youth ages 5-18 a solid foundation on which to create a better life. By providing a positive, safe environment and a team of mentors dedicated to helping youth reconnect with their passions and goals, we help them overcome obstacles getting in the way of their success.

  • Fit For Life – Fitness and nutrition workshops and training focused on improving motor skills, flexibility, strength, team participation and overall well-being.
  • Lead for Life – Individual and group mentoring sessions and role modelling focused on building self-awareness, self-esteem, self-confidence, respect for oneself and others, and overcoming challenges and fear.
  • Learn for Life – Workshops and tutoring designed to help youth develop effective reading, study and homework techniques, set and achieve goals and acquire the discipline to stay focused on the task at hand.
