The CityKids Foundation (CityKids) was founded by Laurie Meadoff in 1985 to realize the vision of creating a safe space where diverse young people can listen, share, and grow as leaders to positively impact the world. Through cutting edge youth development programs, CityKids has trained tens of thousands of young people throughout the past 30 years  to be leaders and effective agents of social change.
