Our vision is to create meaningful volunteer experiences for diverse communities

The Kindness Connection (TKC) is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that fosters the next generation of volunteers by making meaningful service learning opportunities accessible to youth in the Chicago metropolitan area. We believe that positive volunteer experiences early in life have the power to inspire individuals to make the practice of giving their time and resources to charitable and civic causes an intrinsic part of their lives.
