The Presidential Volunteer Service Award is a nationally-recognized awards program which encourages youth and adults to live of life of service. Kids Korps volunteers have given their time volunteering at local nonprofits in projects such as serving meals to the homeless, taking care of abandoned animals, cleaning up our local lagoons, spending time with senior citizens, and acting as buddies to youth with disabilities – among many other activities.

About 90 Kids Korps members have volunteered more than 2,000 hours of community service in the last year. If your family is interested in joining Kids Korps to support the vision of developing a future generation of volunteers and making a difference within the San Diego community please take the time to sign up as a member and inspire others to take positive action to change the world.  Visit
