To inspire and empower kids to take action in their communities by publicizing the success of their peers.
A Ripple Kid is a kid who has identified an issue and has taken action to resolve it. Whether it's picking up trash on the beach or attempting to end gang violence by developing legislation to ban ammunition, these kids are making a difference.
Our vision is that community service becomes the rule rather than the exception, and that society recognizes how valuable kids are when it comes to addressing the issues that currently plague our world. We will publicize the good things our kids are doing for their communities, making these stories part of the mainstream. Kids will view getting involved in their community as a cool, hip thing to do.
