OSU KidSpirit

Providing young people with intentional, high quality, equitable learning experiences that promote positive interactions among adults and peers.

KidSpirit links knowledge from Oregon State University to community youth in an environment that creates service and learning opportunities for participants and volunteers alike.

KidSpirit staff study and demonstrate effective teaching strategies and professionalism, and learn life skills that increase their confidence and self-esteem, enabling them to enter the workplace as leaders.

For participants, a health, physical activity, science and a creative arts curriculum created and implemented by KidSpirit staff improve the skills, lifestyle and social development of children of all ages, abilities and cultural backgrounds. Activities focus on instruction and skill building, increasing confidence and self-esteem, and fostering personal talents while creating friendships in a safe and positive environment.
