Kaleo Kids is a creative movement where art, kids & joy collide.

We know what you're thinking. It's pronounced kal-eh'-o. And it means to invite! This works out perfectly for us because it reflects our heartbeat quite concisely. We are ALL about inviting. Inviting kids to do things they have never done before. Inviting communities to come hang out with other communities. Inviting people to use their God-given talents for a life changing purpose. 

Yea, it seriously is as cool sounds. But don't take my word for it - see for yourself: 


Hand over the mic and let us tell you what we LOVE

Artistic Excellence

We set the bar higher to challenge artistic abilities. 

Kids should say: "I understand the importance of doing my best!"




Confidence Building

We press into fear and insecurity to challenge students' beliefs in their own capabilities.

Kids should say: "I can do more than I thought I could!"



Experiencing Joy

We guide kids in discovering, knowing and sharing the joy that comes from living int he assurance they are loved and valued exactly as they are. 

Kids should say: "I know I am unique and my identity is not found in my talents!"



Community Engagement

We believe the arts bring people together and have the power to cross social and economic differences.

Kids should say: "I believe my gifts and talents are meant to be a blessing to others!" 




It is difficult to be brief about the impact Kaleo Kids has made on our family. The program has helped shape our daughters (ages 9-16) in such meaningful ways. So much love and identity have been poured into them, and then has flowed out of them as courage and creativity.
