Our Kids in Action is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization, that partners with the business community, elected officials, civic leaders, educators and parents to promote character education, wellness, and leadership skills for Long Island middle school students. Together, the many participating Long Island school districts and Our Kids in Action recognize the potential of Long Island's youth and encourage them to make a mark within their community.
The Our Kids in Action Annual Youth Conference provides a wonderful platform to engage students and spark interaction with each other and inspirational guest speakers.
The conference is free for the schools and inspires our future leaders of tomorrow by providing examples of personal success, achievement, and character. Past conference speakers have included athlete Sarah Reinersten, poet Mattie Stepanek, former NASA astronaut Guy Gardner, inspirational motivator John Basedow, Brooke Ellison and Ed Gerety.
