LOS ANGELES, Oct. 12 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Success for Kids, Inc.

Our goal is to partner with communities to ensure the next generation of leaders are empowered to achieve their rightful places as productive human beings."

Visitors such as parents of children enrolled in SFK programs and parents who are interested in SFK can now access program lessons, benefits to students and expected outcomes following completion. The site will answer important questions for those interested in volunteering, making a monetary contribution or learning more about SFK's special approach to helping more than 60,000 children and adolescents strengthen their life skills.
