The foundation mission is to provide quality developmental programs that empower the youth, especially those from disadvantaged circumstances, to realize their full potential as productive citizens. KWF accomplishes this mission, delivering quality programs that meet the changing needs of young people in three core areas: Health, Education, and Employability and Leadership Development. To support activities and approaches which prevent substance abuse, violence or delinquency and supports youth choosing healthy behaviors.
KWF is a community-based organization whose programs are designed to enhance employment, education and leadership opportunities of high-risk youth while also contributing to the overall economic development of the community. KWF has been engaged in activities designed to improve our capacity to effectively serve our target population and positively impact low-income communities. Specific project activities will include: the assistance of ongoing professional staff to help youth in integrating arts in education and cultural experiences, engaging at-risk youth in the development of a range of multimedia products and presentations.
