The Shaun King Foundation is dedicated
to serving underprivileged youth through programs
that inspire and empower them to take part in
educational and civic opportunities. The Foundation
has developed programs and provided funding to
non-profits agencies that promote self-esteem,
self-confidence and self-worth among children
who need it most.
The King’s Kids program is a collaborative
effort between the Shaun King Foundation and the
Boys & Girls Clubs of the Suncoast. The program
is a 3-year plan to expose children in Shaun’s
hometown of St. Petersburg to local, national
and international government. The Foundation supports
Shaun’s primary goal of teaching all children
that they have the opportunity and the responsibility
to participate in the betterment of their community
by becoming active citizens in the political process
of American government.
