“…focused on offering… not only the knowledge to become aware of the issues out there but also the skills necessary to start tackling them.”


Our programs for children’s out-of-school time build the STEM skills that they need for success




which motivates action & helps kids lead happier, more grateful lives.

“I like KidsMakeItRight. It teaches me about how to take care of our planet. Pollution is not the solution. Animals and fish get sick by eating trash and die! KidsMakeItRight is really fun… I learned that I can make a difference.”

–Planet Protector Ava–


“I love how KidsMakeItRight helped Ava feel empowered in her ability to make a positive change in the world. She is more aware of her environmental footprint and how her actions could affect the world around her. It has opened her eyes and her heart…”

–Lauren, Ava’s Mom–


KidsMakeItRight Planet Protectors learn about how their trash affects the environment and the people and animals in it.  They apply STEM skills, lean startup methodology, & their own critical thinking to execute socially-responsible projects.
