How Amazing Kids! Began
Founded in 1998, salve Amazing Kids!’ mission is to help inspire kids to discover their own unique gifts and to use them in positive and productive ways to make a difference in their lives and in the communities in which they live.
Amazing Kids! Founder and President Alyse Rome, a former educator and marketing executive, wanted to provide kids with a positive, uplifting alternative voice to the too-often negative and sensationalistic voice of the mass media and the news. She set out to create a safe and educationally enriching online environment where kids could read the success stories about their peers (the “Amazing Kids! of the Month”), so kids could learn from each other, and be motivated to become achievers in their own lives as well. Every child deserves to have a bright future. No child’s potential should ever go to waste!
Amazing Kids!’ mission is to inspire kids to discover their own unique gifts and abilities and to help them use these gifts in positive and productive ways to launch their dreams for their amazing future. It is our highest wish that our kids go on to use their gifts to make a difference in their lives and in the communities in which they live, as well as in the world.
Because we realize that kids need the help of caring adults in launching their dreams for their future, Amazing Kids! has established our Launch My Dream! initiative. As a collaborative initiative, Amazing Kids! is working with others who are concerned for, and care deeply about, the future of our kids, especially in the light of today’s difficult economic climate.
