Up to 70 percent of children of inmates may one day become incarcerated.
Georgia’s prison expenditures total more than $1 billion annually.
Ninety-nine percent of Kidz2Leaders graduates are living free from state or federal incarceration.
In 2018, more than 500 volunteers gave a total of 23,500 volunteer hours to Kidz2Leaders to directly serve 325 children and family members. Since 1999, our programs have impacted more than 1,300 campers, siblings, parents, guardians, and relatives.Support K2L
