Kids on a Mission (KOAM)

Organize Events, Fundraise and Learn Practical Skills!

Touching Heart’s Kids on a Mission (KOAM) is program shows kids they can make a real impact on the world around them. Through our KOAM program, kids and teens partner with a Touching Heart coach and work together to organize a fundraising event and awareness for a charity of their choice. Our young leaders are challenged to step outside their comfort zones throughout the process.  They gain event planning, marketing, collaboration, communication, public speaking, budgeting and leadership skills as they work as a team to make a difference for others, all while having a blast!  Kids and teens can earn volunteer hours while building compassion for others and an appreciation for their everyday blessings. Our Kids on a Mission program has helped fund projects for children in need across the globe. It’s a true model of kids helping kids!

Kids on a mission is a great way for kids to learn the joy of giving. It has been an amazing experience from start to finish. I have learned so much working with touching heart. They exposed me to the need of foster children in not only this area but across America.

When I first got to the meeting, I was so excited to learn more about how these people lived, and how hard it is for them. It was really touching, and some of the letters we read were just so heartbreaking! I will treasure these stories forever. Thank you Touching Heart.

Nick, 11 years old

Over the summer I raised $140 for a little girl in India. A few weeks later I received a letter from the little girl who thanked me for all the things she was able to do with my donation. I felt so good about being able to help someone less fortunate than me.

Diya, 9 years old

Attended Touching Heart workshops last year. At first, I did not know what an orphan was. But when I did the workshop I understood what it means to grow up without parents and not have lots of clothes and toys. Am thankful to have parents who love me.

I liked the day because I love the activities. I also liked learning about places and people that need our help. Now I want to help people in other places. Thank you for letting me come. It was a great opportunity and one I would highly recommend to everyone.
