Empowering our youth to create a happier, healthier world

How Can I Help by Little Kitchen Academy

At Little Kitchen Academy, we care about educating the whole child and teaching practical life skills, both inside and outside the kitchen. We believe in empowering our youth to empower others. That’s why we created How Can I Help by Little Kitchen Academy, a first-of-its-kind philanthropic program, that puts the power of giving into the hands of our students and will create a generation that cares about the world around them.

Every student learns about our three charitable partners and is given the chance to ask ‘how can I help’, feeling empowered to make a choice about what matters most to them, while learning that they can make the world a better place. Little Kitchen Academy donates $1 on behalf of every student to the charity they choose to help.

For How Can I Help by Little Kitchen Academy, we have partnered with notable charities doing important work: Crisis Text Line, The Global FoodBanking Network, Kids Help Phone, and One Tree Planted. Each student will learn what these organizations do and how they can help others by choosing to support that work.
