What is Kids At Their Best?
Kids At Their Best is a self-sustaining leadership program that opens up a path out of poverty to college and career. Leadership begins with the littlest kids, and as the children grow and learn, they inspire and teach the younger ones. Our 600+ kids speak 26 unique languages, reflecting the changing community of Colorado’s Eastern Plains. Share our Strength named KATB a national model for community engagement and youth leadership.
All children and families will have access to resources they need and will be supported and encouraged to follow their path to reach their fullest potential.
