Together, we can help empower youth to share their creativity and promote the exploration of innovative ideas!

Our Programs

Develop. Give Back. Grow.
Go to Volunteering


We will organize volunteer activities that encourage children to share their passions, special skills and talents within their communities. In so doing, they will gain invaluable leadership and presentation experience, while reinforcing the importance of giving back and helping others.

Go to Education


We will foster learning and creativity in our community through educational workshops designed to promote skill-building in a fun and family-friendly environment. Our workshops will also focus on the design thinking process, helping kids solve problems and share their creativity.

Go to Idea Challenge

Idea Challenge

With the Idea Challenge, we provide elementary school children the chance to receive funding in support of their creative or innovative ideas. Our Idea Challenge mini-grants feature multiple opportunities for kids to work either individually or in a group or class to better their school or community.

The Clever Kids Foundation

The Clever Kids Foundation is a Baltimore-based 501(c)(3) charitable organization whose mission is to nurture and support elementary-aged students in their creativity and exploration of innovative ideas.
