We get asked this a lot. Is KCT for teens? Is KCT for kids? Is it a social group or a community service organization?
The answer to all of this is YES. Kids Coming Together is for both kids and teens looking for opportunities to make new friends, volunteer, and connect with their community.
Kids Coming Together events are for kids in grades 3 to 8 (during the summer months kids are considered to be in the grade they will be entering in the fall). Teens in grades 9 through 12 volunteer as High School leaders and/or can apply to join the Youth Board.
We currently operate in the Sammamish, Issaquah, and Redmond areas. However, all kids are welcome to attend. We are open to discussion about growing in other areas once COVID restrictions are lifted.
We meet wherever the event is best facilitated within the Sammamish/Issaquah/Redmond area – predominantly on the Sammamish Plateau. When we are working with a partner organization we go where the event or project is, but we tend to stay in the general area that we serve.
Most events are for one to one and a half hours. However, check the calendar when you RSVP because there are times when our community partner needs us there for a longer.
Due to COVID restrictions and guidelines we ask parents not to attend events. You are welcome to wait in the parking lot or explore the local area but we need to keep numbers down and therefore restrict events to the Registered Kids and HS Volunteers. Leaving the area of the event is your choice. We do have the phone number you registered with and will call if any problems come up.
Parents do not participate with their child. KCT provides events for kids in grades 3 - 8 as a bridge between supervised playdates and independence. However, if you child needs assistance then please contact our Program Director, Deb Carmichael, to discuss what events might work for you and your child.
All kids. KCT designs events for kids in grades 3 to 8. We welcome kids that are looking to make new friends and/or take part in community service projects. Our high school leaders work hard to facilitate new social interactions and help encourage conversations, all while working to help our community.
You sign your child up for individual events that work for your schedule. Begin registration by looking at our upcoming events then click REGISTER KIDS GRADES 3-8 to complete the registration form.
Please email our Youth Board VP with any suggestions. We love new ideas!
KCT events typically qualify for community service hours. We are happy to sign any necessary forms for our volunteers. However, each school has its own unique set of rules. Please confirm with your school.
KCT takes COVID very seriously in order to keep our community safe. Our full COVID policy is available HERE.
