Do you remember the first time you knew you mattered?

Not simply that someone, like a teacher, parent or friend, told you, but that you knew, deep inside, that you and your life mattered? For children, this moment of awareness can be the most defining development of their young lives, and can shape the paths they take, the relationships they form and their inherent self-worth. 

iMatter for Kids offers a community based leadership program that empowers children to discover their strengths, set goals, communicate effectively and create positive relationships.

iMatter for Kids offers:

• 10 weekly sessions at school during enrichment hour/after school

• Unique peer mentoring with mentor & mentee “synergy” matching

• Hands-on training for parents and school teachers

• Daily practice in the classroom throughout the year

• Summer community leadership camps

The first school utilizing this program is Pierce Elementary in Birmingham. The goal is to roll the program out to multiple schools over the next five years.  

iMatter for Kids™ is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization.
