Athletes For Kids
Last updated on June 27, 2016


Athletes for Kids enhances the lives of children with special needs and the high school athletes who mentor them. We believe that modeling acceptance, inclusion, and respect of all individuals transforms and strengthens our communities.

Athletes For Kids is a youth mentoring program that serves children with special needs and disabilities of all kinds.
The “Kids” in our name are children in grades 1-9 being mentored by our program.
The “Athletes” are high school athletes who make a commitment to mentor one child for the duration of their high school career.
Athletes For Kids helps children with special needs reach their potential by developing confidence, self-esteem, and essential life skills.
We help student athletes reach their potential by developing character, leadership skills, compassion, and commitment.
Athletes for Kids helps schools and communities reach their potential by fostering environments where differences are celebrated and where all students are treated with dignity and respect.

Founded on the idea that friendship has the power to restore a child’s faith in life, we were incorporated as a 501(c)(3)in 2002. Since that time, we have grown from a small group at one school to an organization serving children in Issaquah, Sammamish, Bellevue, Kirkland, Mercer Island, Newcastle, Renton,Redmond, and surrounding areas.
