Since our founding in 2015, KW Kids Can (KWKC) has grown tremendously. With so many new faces, it’s about time we reintroduced ourselves to this incredible community!
KWKC is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that provides self- and career-development events, professional coaching, and scholarships to young adults ages 18–28. We began under the guidance of entrepreneur Gary Keller, the founder of Keller Williams Realty—the world’s largest real estate franchise.
The vision was to help younger generations let go of self-doubt and self-imposed limitations so they could maximize their potential and live fulfilled lives.
The KWKC Mission
At KWKC, we fundamentally believe that everyone has a unique purpose—their own dreams and their own path to success. But we know it can be overwhelming to figure out what you want to do with your life.
That’s why we’re passionate about helping every young adult discover their own life’s mission and equipping them with resources and training to live it out.
The Foundation: The KWKC Curriculum
KWKC’s curriculum and resources are all fueled by a proprietary training program called Quantum Leap (QL). QL equips individuals with a set of tools that helps them define and achieve their own version of success.
Year-round, KWKC offers donation-based events centered on six self-development courses, including Quantum Leap. These events help attendees accelerate their success by learning how to do things such as:
Create a personal mission statement
Develop a growth mindset
Build a plan to achieve their goals
Manage their money
Make wiser decisions
When COVID hit, we knew that now more than ever, young adults needed extra guidance in finding a path forward to living a full life.
We pivoted from only in-person events to hosting courses online as well. The move to including virtual options has increased our reach and the impact we can have on young adults across the nation.
Events hosted over 6 years
The Second Step: Quantum Leap Coaching
Our curriculum provides a strong foundation for self-development, but we don’t stop there. After attending an event, anyone ages 18–28 qualifies to apply for three months of one-on-one QL coaching.
Those accepted into the QL coaching program are assured individualized support from a KW MAPS or Business MAPS coach. Every student will have their own coach, helping them map out a plan of action to achieve their goals.
Students coached over 2 years
The Next Level: Fund My Mission Scholarships
Students who complete the three-month coaching program are encouraged to apply for a Fund My Mission (FMM) Scholarship. FMM Scholarships are designed to help young adults finance the pursuit of their dreams.
Recipients of FMM Scholarships are awarded up to $5,000 to help cover the costs of education, training, coaching, or certifications that align with the fulfillment of their personal life mission.
Awarded in scholarships over 2 years
If you know of anyone who can benefit from KWKC’s events, coaching, or scholarships, spread the word about these free resources. Together, we can ensure the next generations are equipped to maximize their potential!
