Our MIssion

Kizuna’s mission is to build a future for our community through the education, empowerment, and engagement of the next generation.

Core Values

Kizuna believes with these core values we can build the next generation of strong leaders for the community.


With the value of caring, we stress the importance of respect and empathy for others, as well as maintaining one's own well-being.


We define growth as a commitment to lifelong learning, gaining new experiences, and continuously striving to be better. 


Participants learn the value of responsibility for themselves and towards others. We focus on teaching values such as accountability, ethics, and commitment to others.


Our curriculums focus on teaching our participants about the importance of gratitude, appreciation, and the philanthropic giving of time, talents, and treasures back to the community.
