In response to COVID-19, Kidzz Helping Kidzz created a program called “Kids Chat”. Kids Chat was made for any kid aged 10-15, offering an opportunity for kids to come together via Zoom to talk about topics of importance (determined by the kids) and to bridge socialization and friendship together during a time of increased isolation for kids all over the country. To make things more personable in 2023, we offered a monthly in-person "game night" at our house every second Saturday of the month at 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM. Parents were of course welcome to stay and play.
Masks were optional for all, regardless of vaccination status.
"Over the past few months I have been slowly losing touch with some of my friends due to COVID-19. Kids Chat has really helped me meet new people and continue to socialize. The topics are interesting and I feel like I can talk to everyone."
