Carter’s Kids is a non-profit organization dedicated to creating and promoting awareness of fitness and self-esteem for America’s youth. The purpose is to increase the activity level of kids by building and developing community parks and playgrounds in their neighbourhoods. The kids then have the opportunity to take an active part in building up their community by using, sharing, and caring for these public spaces.
My team and I will collaborate closely with the neighbourhood kids as they are active participants in the building process from beginning to end. They will assist in planning, developing and executing the playground or youth center. The collaborative effort gets them active and creates a connection with the kids and their “space” so that they gain that sense of ownership and care for a place that they helped build. From my experience as a young kid building things, there is no greater sense of satisfaction when you see something that you’ve built being enjoyed by others. I hope to impart that same feeling in our young builders with Carter’s Kids.
Our purpose of promoting activity, nutrition and fighting childhood obesity, has led us to build playgrounds in communities all over the United States. We have experienced firsthand, the positive effect that each playground has brought to their community. Carter’s Kids is actively seeking corporate sponsorships to help us fulfill our mission.
