The KIDS PLUS program was established by the Northland Foundation to improve the well being of children and youth.
Through KIDS PLUS, local citizens - youth and adults from all sectors - work together to make their communities better places for children and youth to live and grow.
KIDS PLUS serves as a catalyst to create new opportunities for children and youth, to strengthen relationships across all ages; to shift community perception to view youth as contributors and valuable resources.
