"Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It's not."

- Dr. Seuss

Mission:

The Kindness Connection’s mission is to inspire youth to be lifelong volunteers.

About:

The Kindness Connection (TKC) is an innovative nonprofit 501(c)(3) organization. Evidence shows that children who volunteer go on to be more giving of their time and resources as adults. With the lack of hands-on service opportunities for young children, TKC fills the gap by providing turnkey, tangible service experiences for children. By creating meaningful gifts for veterans, seniors, youth and animals, children develop a foundation for a life filled with kindness and giving. TKC’s space at Northbrook Court offers a place where families may volunteer during our open hours or reserve times for larger groups.

TKC also works with schools to host Kindness Days where students participate in a curriculum based volunteer day which includes a discussion, the completion of projects for a chosen charity and a wrap up. Schools may experience this through our facilitated program, reserving our Northbrook space during the school day or receiving our Classroom Kindness Kits, for teachers to facilitate volunteering in the classroom.
