Utilizing the power of drama, recreation, and art to unite elementary students with high school mentors, KidPOWER effectively builds support systems and communication skills which follow children for the rest of their lives. Under the guidance of CARES staff, student mentors use engaging activities such as skits, crafts, and exercises in self-expression to help participants become more confident, competent problem solvers.


  • Participation in performance-oriented activities builds self-esteem, interpersonal and problem-solving skills
  • Enthusiastic mentors offer advice on goal setting and moral leadership in a fun and supportive environment
  • Have fun in a unique environment!
