Our Kids in Action is a not for profit 501(c)(3) organization, that partners with the business community, elected officials, civic leaders, educators and parents to promote character education, wellness, and leadership skills for Long Island middle school students. Together, the many participating Long Island school districts and Our Kids in Action recognize the potential of Long Island's youth and encourage them to make a mark within their community.



Our Kids in Action was established in 2000 by Action Long Island www.actionlongisland.org. Since its inception, Our Kids in Action has been hosting an annual youth conference gathering middle school students and faculty from public and private schools across Long Island.

The Our Kids in Action Annual Youth Conference provides a wonderful platform to engage students and spark interaction with each other and inspirational guest speakers

The conference is free for the schools and inspires our future leaders of tomorrow by providing examples of personal success, achievement, and character.  Past conference speakers have included athlete Sarah Reinersten, poet Mattie Stepanek, former NASA astronaut Guy Gardner, inspirational motivator John Basedow, Brooke Ellison and Ed Gerety.

Our Kids in Action is made possible by all of our great sponsors:
