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 four main goals:

-- To mobilize resources in support of local children in conjunction with the Community Center of Northern Westchester, NY.
-- To provide opportunity grants to support young women to actualize their full potential. 

--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.  

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