Just For Kidz (www.jfkorg.org) is a youth-run national 501c3 non-profit organization on a mission to support underserved and marginalized youth through grassroots service, advocacy, and youth empowerment. While we’ve done a few international projects, here’s some of the awesome things we’ve done right here in St. Louis:
– collected and distributed school supplies to low-income children in North County
– cleaned up homes and did meal drop-offs for children in the foster-care system
– worked on a greenhouse to grow fresh vegetables for the backpack program
– distributed winter clothing and essentials to homeless youth in the winter
– organized a virtual anti-racism and racial justice allyship panel/training for over 50 youth
– helped organize a march with demands to dismantle the school-to-prison pipeline
We’re looking to grow our team so we can do some BIG things, and we want YOU to join us! We are recruiting students to serve on our national remote Executive Team with high school and college students from across the country, start their own chapters at their schools and colleges, or join our advisory board.

JFK is a completely youth-run, volunteer organization. Our national executive team is completely remote. All the positions are part-time (1-7 hours a week) and unpaid, but we’ll work with you to get you needed volunteer hours and academic credit. We are trying our best to offer a small stipend to offset the costs of participation for those who would not be able to participate without the support. We also make sure it’s an AMAZING learning experience for you, and we’ll provide tons of opportunities for personal growth and development, peer and professional mentorship, resume support, college application guidance, and leadership and non-profit training. We know that you’ll find it a really exciting and meaningful experience!
All applicants are required to fill out this form. If you are uploading any additional materials, please include all of your documents in the same Google Drive folder. ***Please make sure the share setting is “Anyone with link can view”.***
