STRENGTHENING COMMUNITIES BEGINS WITH CREATING COMMUNITY.
COUNTLESS STUDIES SHOW THAT BELONGING AND A SENSE OF COMMUNITY ARE CRITICAL TO OUR WELLBEING.
We are on a mission to create a sense of stability and belonging for military kids wherever they go, integrating them into their neighborhoods and developing them as future leaders in their communities.
Our mission is powered by our insistence that military-connected children deserve stability and the equal chance to thrive just like their civilian peers.
Kids Rank Spotlight
Kids Rank PRIDES
Kids Rank engages military-connected children and youth in hands-on, skill building projects and volunteer opportunities designed to encourage resilience through our core pillars of CONNECT, LEAD, and SERVE. Over 11 years ago our a group of 10 military-connected kids participated in their very first Pride Meeting in Highwood, IL.
Pride Members during weekly meetings are building Youth Leadership through Pride Officer Positions, giving back to their communities through Volunteer Service Projects, and connecting to other military kids through games and activities! The Kids Rank Pride program is open to school-aged military children from all branches of service including active duty, reservists, retirees, veterans and Families of the Fallen. Currently, Prides located in Forrestal Village, Great Lakes, Highland Park, North Chicago, and Chicago.
