IRVINE, Calif., Feb. 15, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- First Team Real Estate is thrilled to announce a collaboration with Team Kids, an Orange County-based nonprofit organization whose mission is to empower the community's children to change the world.
In the words of Julie Hudash, Founder and CEO of Team Kids, the organization exists because when children feel valued in their community and are entrusted with responsibility to play a meaningful role, they make better choices for the future—resulting in a win-win scenario that nurtures strong children, strong families and strong communities.
"Every child deserves the opportunity to feel significant and to know that their community needs them, and every community can benefit by focusing on giving its children responsibility and purpose," Hudash said. "We are so thrilled to partner with First Team Real Estate because our abilities to reach more children in more communities are now exponentially greater."
Each year, Team Kids hosts a five-week Team Kids Challenge at 30 local schools, harnessing the collaborative efforts of nearly 25,000 students, who are invited to participate in weekly challenges geared toward community issues, including homelessness, hunger, literacy and the environment. Through the partnership with First Team Real Estate—called the Team Kids Superhero Program—real estate agents will serve as mentors to children in their communities, guiding them through various challenges that allow them to make a difference and earn recognition for it.
"Through the Superhero program, kids will be presented with challenges to complete, such as bringing blankets to an animal shelter or writing a thank you note to someone in the military," Hudash explained. "Once they complete these challenges, the real estate agents will present them with certificates thanking them for their contributions and for helping to make their own community a better place."
Says Michael Mahon, President of First Team Real Estate, the Superhero Program is part of the organization's overarching mission to support the communities it so proudly serves.
"As a real estate organization, the communities that inhabit the real estate markets we serve are our lifeblood, and we are passionate about the notion that it is not only our responsibility, but our distinct privilege to support them in every way possible," Mahon stated. "The Superhero Program we're participating in through Team Kids gives all 2,000 of our sales associates the opportunity to give back in a way that's truly meaningful."
