Athletes for Kids is a youth mentoring program that pairs children who have special needs or disabilities with high school athletes to learn from each other and impact each other’s lives.
The AFK program has helped so many children improve their self-esteem, confidence, and even overcome their fear and anxiety of going to school just by providing a consistent mentor in their life to help guide them and support them. Many of the children they work with have never had a friend or play date so AFK mentors have the opportunity to fill that void and show them that they matter.
Life Enrichment Options has had the pleasure of working with AFK on a few events and we are amazed with the work they do to support our community. And since we believe in supporting local nonprofits who are working toward the same goal, we would like to announce they are doing their annual auction on October 29th at the Embassy Suites in Bellevue! Please check out this great organization and their upcoming event: http://athletesforkids.org/
