Wednesday, November 20, 2019: Houston City Hall hosted the students of UNICEF Kid Power program for Children’s Day. Students from Best Elementary School got to experience everything UNICEF Kid Power has to offer and scored the opportunity to play soccer with former Dynamo Defender Michael Chabala. Official “fitness Czar” of the City of Houston Samir Becic was invited to be a part of the action and witness the excellence of UNICEF Kid Power and their tremendous contribution to children in Houston on Children’s Day.
UNICEF Kid Power is a program of UNICEF USA that empowers students and connects their everyday activity to real-world impact. It has become one of the largest education-technology programs reaching underserved students in the U.S. and has been named one of TIME magazine’s 25 Best Inventions of 2016.
UNICEF Kid Power delivers a unique source of empowerment. Through the program, students realize their everyday activities, like moving and learning, can make a real-world impact. They become more engaged and active while learning critical social and emotional competencies like empathy, self-efficacy, and teamwork, which empower them to work together to make a difference in the world.
UNICEF Kid Power is a free platform that allows educators to meet social-emotional learning requirements for their classrooms.
