Kids Helping Kids: Summer of Service (Now Full!)

Kids Helping Kids: Summer of Service

This summer, we're equipping kids with materials and training to lead a project to help kids like them.

WOW! We’ve reached our max at 100 youth participants. We’re so grateful – THANK YOU! Registrations are now closed.

Learn more about other Youth and Family opportunities here.

At Activate Good, we believe kids can change their communities — and the world.

Join us to make this summer a Summer of Service! We’re inviting kids in 3rd – 9th grades to lead service projects in their homes, neighborhoods, and communities that will improve the lives of other kids like them.

Youth will sign up and join Activate Good at our Summer of Service Youth Training Event on June 26, where we’ll provide each participant with a short training and a Service Project STARTER Kit with everything they need to get their project started and lead a supply drive for their project to impact more lives in the Triangle. Learn more about how it works below

Niños Ayudando a Niños: Un Verano De Servicio– Información Sobre La Registración

On the form, you’ll be able to choose which of the 3 service project options you’d like to lead with your family, friends, and neighborhood. Leading a project means using the materials and instructions provided in your Service Project STARTER Kit to conduct a supply drive for materials and assemble bags / packs to support one of our participating causes! To ensure many kids get the chance to join in, each youth / family will only be able to choose one project (learn more about the 3 project choices and causes they’ll help below!).


Attend our Summer of Service Youth Training & Kit Pick Up event on Saturday, June 26 (11:00 AM or 1:00 PM), where kids will:

  • Receive a training on how to LEAD and GROW their service project by conducting a supply drive or other activities aimed at inviting others they know to contribute to their project
  • Pick-Up their Service Project STARTER Kit, which contains supplies to complete a small-scale service project and step-by-step instructions on how to lead a supply drive to obtain more materials and assemble even more bags / packs for our participating causes! 
  • Hear about our participating causes about the work they do and why it’s so important to help out
  • Celebrate being a youth changemaker and meet other participants, too!


Lead your supply drive and complete your service project between June 26 and August 6!

Start with the materials provided in your Service Project Starter Kit, then use the instructions to lead a supply drive or encourage your friends and family to contribute so you can help even more kids. Share photos and quotes with Activate Good throughout your efforts to share on social media! Drop off all completed items at the designated nonprofit host location site (based on which project you chose) no later than Friday, August 6.
