About the Stand Up For Kids Foundation
At the Stand Up For Kids Foundation, we believe that kids benefit the most when they are involved in activities that keep them interested. Stand Up For Kids offers today's youth an opportunity to interact with sports and prominent media figures, who feel that the kids are our future and are willing to make our community a better place to live. The Stand Up For Kids Foundation helps to focus kids on being spiritually balanced, goal oriented and to believe anything and everything they dream can be realized.  
Past activities include: Poetry Slam, Art with Colors, and FUN with Karaoke where students were challenged to expressive themselves through the poetry, art, and music. Young Chefs endowed students with culinary opportunities to practice sequencing and following directions, two crucial items that figure prominently in standardized testing, while strengthening their reading comprehension and group skills.
Future activities included: Back-To-School Supply Shopping Day, Thanksgiving Turkey Give Away, Santa’s Little Helpers, and Christmas Shopping Events. Stand Up For Kids is striving to create activity centers and build computer labs, sports fields/courts, kitchens, art labs, and tailored learning rooms.  “ STAND UP. BE CHANGE”
