Good for Kids was founded in 2003 by a small group of educators from suburban New York.  As a fully volunteer organization, our purpose is to positively impact the lives of young people at home and abroad.  

We have three main goals:

-- To raise awareness and mobilize resources in support of local children in need, in conjunction with the Community Center of Northern Westchester, NY.

--To bring attention and support to the needs of children, especially young women, living in LaCarpio, a refugee camp just outside of San Jose, Costa Rica.  We do this in conjunction with ReNeuvos Association, based in LaCarpio. 

--To inspire and empower young people as social activists, working in community for the greater good.
