iKites is a nonprofit organization dedicated to inspiring children about STEAM and leadership concepts from a younger age.
We are dedicated to empowering young students to be ambitious and question the world around them.
iKites was created in January 2018. However, this idea originated in the summer of 2017, when we held a summer program for kids in Hillsborough where various STEAM and leadership concepts were taught. This program was continued throughout the year for a Fall and Spring session.
We have had a large increase in students through these sessions. In total, we have had 2000 hours of innovating and 250 Youth volunteering opportunities.
We plan to embrace many new initiatives to provide resources to students that they did not have before and to empower underprivileged neighborhoods with sessions similar to those we have run in the past.
Overall, iKites works to achieve a brighter future by creating the next generation of leaders.
