About Just About Kids Foundation
Just About Kids Foundation (known as JAK) is a non-profit 501c3 organization formed by a group of students and district patrons for the purpose of providing financial support for Kingwood High School. We did this by providing service learning to create student social entrepreneurs.....philanthropists in action. Our goal was to teach entrepreneurial and leadership skills while inspiring a sense of philanthropic service.
"Social Entrepreneurs identify resources where people only see problems.
They begin with competence and unleash resources in the communities they're serving."
Just About Kids was founded in 1999 in Denver, Colorado, with one boy's dream to raise money for abused and neglected children. The organization continued until 2001 in Denver, 2002-2009 in Andover, Kansas, and existed at Kingwood High School in Kingwood, Texas from 2011-2015.
