OUR MISSION

Count on Kids is a newly formed, amazing non-profit in the Sacramento region. Our mission is to create tomorrow’s socially conscious leaders through participation in and facilitation of community improvement projects. We will have programs that engage all children, from the youngest toddler to the newest college student, and provide them opportunities to positively impact their communities.

 

 

OUR STORY

After Kelli Plevyak, founder of Count on Kids, had the privilege of sitting on the board of Oregon based nonprofit, Little Hands Can, she was inspired to do something in her own community. She envisioned a program that engaged all children, from the youngest toddler to the newest college student, and provided them opportunities to positively impact their communities. She wanted the program to guide them on a journey, a journey that took them from having a “me” perspective to a “we” perspective. The beginning of the journey would include participating in community service projects such as putting together Care Kits for the homeless. The journey would culminate with a young adult using our toolkit to not only create their own community service project but to lead and facilitate it themselves. In short, Kelli wanted to help create tomorrow’s socially conscious leaders. Leaders that would grow into adults and continue to positively impact their own communities but also take that perspective and skill-set into their workplace.

Count on Kids was formed from this vision. Our mission is to create tomorrow’s socially conscious leaders through participation in and facilitation of community improvement projects. We know that children are capable of great things. We know that if they are given the right environment and support, they can change the world and at the same time gain valuable qualities such as confidence and compassion.
