What Kids Can Do (WKCD) is a national nonprofit that promotes perceptions of young people as valued resources, not problems, and advocates for learning opportunities that engage students as knowledge creators and not simply test takers. Using the Internet, print, and broadcast media, WKCD presses before the broadest audience possible a dual message: the power of what young people can accomplish when given the opportunities and supports they need and what they can contribute when we take their voices and ideas seriously. WKCD is a grant maker, too, collaborating with youth on multimedia, curricula, and research that expand current views of what constitutes challenging learning and achievement.
