Success From the Start

Kids Hope USA provides comprehensive training programs (all available online) for every role. Access online director training via smartphone, tablet, or computer. The time spent learning the materials and activities during training equips a leader to fully launch and run a program. You will be contacted to meet either in person or over the phone prior to the start of training.

We also provide complete training courses for mentors and prayer partners upon the completion of director training.
