We're a registered nonprofit Jewish organization. Learn about what we do and see our charity programs here.

Kars4kids Mentor Program
The Kars4Kids Vision

Kars4Kids‘ vision is to give our children the ability to succeed in life. We focus on educational, mentorship and year-round programs for our children, their families and their communities, looking at the big picture of our children‘s development and the environment they grow up in. We rely on thousands of volunteers to help us change the world, one child at a time.

Farm Program

Animals can be very therapeutic for children. The children in our summer camp gain so much from the farm program, from the confidence of learning to ride a horse, to the feeling of empowerment that taking care of a baby animal gives. The kids love all the camp's animals, from the little bunnies and goats to the cows and horses.

Upgrade Education

Many a failing student can be helped with a little extra tutoring after school. The one on one attention and personalized help geared to their learning style can make all the difference for them. Our Upgrade Education program provides tutors for eligible students. Just an hour a day can bring a flagging child up to speed.
