Volo Kids Foundation | Building communities of active, resilient, and confident kids

Screen Shot 2023-01-13 at 1.58.48 PM.png
The Volo Kids story began in Baltimore City in 2015 in response to the civil unrest sparked by rioting throughout the city. The aim of the Volo Kids Foundation was to use sport as a tool for healing and a means of uniting communities. To execute our vision, we partnered with City Council members, community organizers, and recreation centers to launch the first Volo Kids Foundation program at Herring Run Recreation Center. Volo Kids has since expanded to seven cities across the country and is still growing!

Kati Wood, program and outreach coordinator joins Gabe Ortis to share more about the foundation.
