Character Education

Teaching children kindness, empathy, compassion,
social justice and peace-building;
and encouraging them to become engaged citizens.


Leadership Development

Building children’s confidence and
teaching them that they have the power
to make the world a better place now.


Community Building

Working together to build strong, resilient
communities that will help all children become
the best world-changing kid they can be.


At World-Changing Kids (WCK), we are dedicated to building a community of friends where we can create, inspire, teach, learn and support one another. A community where we all feel loved, included and safe. Where we believe the good things we do really can effect change on a larger scale.
