Connecting With Kids - Healthy Kids, Healthy Community

Connecting With Kids (CWK) is a program of the Edina Community Foundation.

 

The community of Edina is committed to creating the future for youth. In the fall of 1998, an Edina Asset Building Steering Committee was established to start planning for how Edina as a community could build a healthier Edina for its youth. This planning centers on the asset  development research conducted by the Minneapolis-based Search Institute.

 

We believe that a community and its members have a powerful influence on the development of young people. Together  in partnership with the Search Institute, the community of Edina is identifying and building developmental assets that give kids what they need to succeed.

 

OUR MISSION

To connect individuals, families, organizations and other resources in Edina to help them fulfill their responsibility to raise healthy children and develop a healthy community.

 

OUR VISION

To be a community where all children have the support they need to grow up to be responsible, healthy and caring adults.
