When & Where
Rupert’s Kids is a 501(c)(3) organization dedicated to serving an easily overlooked population of youth: those that have become too old for the youth social service system, but are not old enough for the adult social service system. We teach these youth valuable skills and trades, while also empowering them to discover their inner strengths, passions and interests.
OUR MISSION Rupert’s Kids’ mission is to empower youth to discover their inner strengths, realize their own self worth and recognize their value to society.
OUR GOALS Provide mentoring and educational programming to at-risk youth in our communities Foster community partnerships, which serve youth and families Facilitate delivery of financial assistance and/or services to youth, in the areas of education, vocational training and job placement Develop committed volunteers and donors to provide resources of time, money and property Indianapolis-based Rupert’s Kids serves youth, typically ages 18-24, who have received intensive services in nearly every social service system in the region. Because these young men and women are unable to achieve and sustain stable housing and employment, most return to situations that originally led to the challenges they currently face. Through programs such as the Indy Parks Program, Rupert’s Kids participants learn skills and values that will lead them towards stability in their lives, their employment and relationships.
