Konscious Youth Development & Service (KYDS) is a nonprofit organization targeting the  New Jersey communities of Neptune Township and Asbury Park. This organization was founded in December 2014 by three individuals seeking to support youth through holistic activities focusing on the mind, body and soul. (However it is to be noted, that the organization does not discuss religion) 

In the summer of 2015 and during special events in 2016, KYDS partnered with WAGE- International, joining in on their informal discussions and providing learning experiences on Civil Rights leaders like Martin Luther King Jr, Mahatma Gandhi and Malala Yousafzai.  In the future, we plan to continue to work together to assist youth on their own personal journey and equip them with life skills and educational knowledge to succeed.

Therefore, we are seeking individuals to mentor and work with children ages 11-14 years. Individuals selected to mentor  will assist and provide enrichment activities centered around continued academic success.  Individuals will also engage youth with learning life skills such as teamwork and leadershipas well as the basic education of notable civil rights figures. 

Individuals must be above the age of 18 and are needed in the following areas noted above. If you have further questions, experience in any of the above, or you have an area that you wish to explore within the program parameters please reach out to:
