about us


Mission Statement

Kids at Their Best is a mobile enrichment program that serves children in high poverty, rural areas. We support children's lives through academic excellence, nutritional support, and community involvement.



Vision Statement

Our vision is to help "level the playing field" for disadvantaged children by exposing them to enrichment activities that will provide them with the experiences that will encourage them become positive, well rounded adults.




If you want to know the history of Kids At Their Best, look no further than founder Jodi Walker. Since 2006, she has been collaborating with Northeastern Colorado communities to enrich the lives of children and young adults at or below the poverty line.

Kids At Their Best first began as a dance studio after Jodi found the value in using dance as a form of physical and emotional therapy. The studio focused on building self-esteem and healthy habits for young girls in Morgan County. As the program grew to focus on empowering the youth in her community, KATB began to move from an art program to an all-encompassing youth enrichment programs.

For the last decade, Jodi and Kids At Their Best have made a name for themselves across Northeastern Colorado as an organization that isn’t afraid to think outside of the box to help the kids in their community. From covering yards with flamingos to a superhero themed cocktail party, KATB has strived to make the non-profit world as fun as it is beneficial. Ambitious and welcoming, KATB has partnered within Colorado communities and organizations to bring once-in-a lifetime opportunities to at-risk populations.

Today, Kids At Their Best is home to a multitude of programs that better the lives of minority and poverty level children and young adults. There are afterschool programs that help kids with their homework as well as provide them a creative outlet through art projects. Our summers are filled with day camps and events that provide kids with a free meal and free fun. For our older kids, KATB provides leadership training and college and career prep to help them become well-rounded, community minded adults.

They are responsible for keeping our office organized and running smoothly all while bringing in their unique points or view.

Our Programs

The programs that Kids at Their Best provides have helped me become a great leader as well as a follower. I have been benefitted by the different programs because they have allowed me to grow out of my shell and be involved more in and outside of my community.

Kids at Their Best currently has three programs which are designed to help our kids grow into community conscious and successful adults. From ages 6-20, our kids will express themselves and learn through our summer programs, learn how to find their voice and gain work experience through TNT, and get the tools they need to succeed in college through c4 Academy.

The biggest strength of our programs is that they feed into each other through a holistic process. This starts with our summer programs which work to give kids a safe place to hang out and learn with other kids in their community. As our kids get older, they are able to join TNT which allows them to not only take on a leadership roll within their community, but to then work the summer programs they attended as kids. This hands-on work experience then helps them gain the confidence and skills to succeed after they graduate high school. Our kids who have now been accepted to college serve as both a role model for our younger kids and as ambassadors for our organization.

Of course, we do have a few projects that don't fit quite as neatly into this system; however, that doesn't make them any less exciting for important for our kids to participate in.

Community Projects


Kids At Their Best has been involved in multiple community projects throughout the years including:

Broncos Day: Kids At Their Best hosted members of the Denver Broncos to come out to Morgan County to encourage kids to get outside and get active.

Mobile Food Truck: Our TNT kids spent a year running a mobile food truck which provided food to local communities who were unable to travel to the county food bank.

Kaboom! Playgrounds (In Process):  We are partnering with local communities and national organizations to build state-of-the art parks for children, families, and the elderly alike.

Tnt Leadership program

From 12-17, our kids are able to join TNT (Tweens and Teens) - a year long enrichment program designed to build confidence and leaderships skills.  This gives our kids a chance to make a real difference in their community by becoming role models and leaders in their own right. Our TNT kids are currently working on networking with other groups across Northeast Colorado to create a regional teen leadership team.

  • Weekly Meetings: Our teens meet once a week to discuss everything from upcoming projects to homework to relationships. It gives them a chance to not only make a difference, but make lifelong friends.

  • Retreats at Breckenridge: Twice a year, our TNT leaders take a week to build up their leadership, trust, and problem solving skills at a retreat. They are also pushed out of their comfort zones and into the great outdoors with ropes courses, hikes, and camping. Leaders are required to maintain a certain GPA and attendance record to participate.

  • Community Projects: TNT has participated in local conferences, raised awareness about poverty in Morgan County, and volunteered to raise money for local charities.

  • Networking: TNT has had the opportunity to meet prominent community members, politicians, and business owners across Colorado.
