KTU - Where Children Become Teachers!
Register to teach with KTU!
At KTU, EVERY child has a talent that can be taught to another - be it loading nerf guns, loading dishes, walking dogs, playing Roblox, cooking pasta, baking packaged cookies, milking a cow, counting numbers, or telling jokes. Teaching those skills provides kids a profound sense of purpose, happiness, and confidence. All kid teachers will be provided with free training and ongoing support in and out of classrooms. We welcome all kid teachers aged 7-17. If you are not sure about teaching, register to schedule a Zoom call for more information.
The act of becoming a teacher significantly contributes to a child's cognitive, emotional, and social development, providing a holistic learning experience that goes beyond traditional student roles. When children become teachers, they contribute to building a sense of community within the learning environment. This collaborative atmosphere fosters positive relationships and a supportive educational community. Teaching can instill a love for learning. Children who experience the joy of teaching may develop a lifelong passion for acquiring knowledge and sharing it with others. Children who become teachers enhance their critical thinking skills as they engage with inquiries from their "students." By becoming teachers, children reinforce their own understanding of topics, leading to improved mastery of the material. Most importantly, assuming the role of a teacher empowers children and boosts their confidence. Successfully imparting knowledge to others instills a sense of accomplishment and self-assurance.
Confidence in children contributes to emotional well-being, positive social interactions, and the development of skills that reduce the likelihood of resorting to violence. It creates a foundation for healthy relationships, effective communication, and positive coping mechanisms.
Kids Teach U(niversity) is dedicated to nurturing joyful, well-balanced, and self-assured children. Our mission is to eradicate violence by cultivating happiness and confidence in children. Research indicates that instances of violence originating from children towards others or themselves are often associated with low self-esteem and inadequate coping mechanisms. KTU aims to cultivate happiness and confidence in children by emphasizing learning, teaching, and community engagement. Through engaging activities, interactive lessons, and community engagement, we aim to empower children with the skills and self-esteem they need to thrive. Join us at Kids Teach U(niversity) and let your child's imagination soar!

More than just mental health awareness...
Give kids a sense of purpose and grow their confidence... by letting them teach their hidden talents.
It's crucial to note that violence in children is contributed by low confidence. KTU addresses the loss of confidence in children by creating a supportive environment, fostering positive relationships, and promoting resilience through having children teach and having purpose. KTU's platform allows children to have open communication, give each other positive reinforcement, and practice coping skills can contribute to building and maintaining their confidence as they grow. Additionally, promoting a culture of acceptance and embracing individual differences can counteract societal pressures that negatively impact self-esteem. At KTU, EVERY child has a talent that can be taught to another - be it loading nerf guns, loading dishes, walking dogs, playing Roblox, cooking pasta, baking packaged cookies, milking a cow, counting numbers, or telling jokes. Teaching those skills provides kids a profound sense of purpose, happiness, and confidence.
Inspiring and Impacting Others
Teaching allows individuals to make a positive impact on the lives of others. Knowing that one has the potential to positively influence the lives and aspirations of others also contributes to a deep sense of purpose. The act of inspiring others creates a cycle of positive energy that not only uplifts those you inspire but also contributes significantly to your own happiness and well-being.
Witnessing the progress and success of students over time is immensely rewarding. Knowing that one has played a role in someone's achievements boosts confidence and reinforces the sense of purpose. Having a sense of purpose provides a framework for personal growth, resilience, and positive self-perception, all of which contribute to building and sustaining confidence in oneself and one's abilities.
Recognition, Appreciation, and Inclusion
Receiving recognition and appreciation boost confidence and provide a sense of validation. When individuals feel appreciated, it positively influences their self-worth. Similarly, inclusion is a fundamental aspect of human happiness. It satisfies the need for connection, belonging, security, and understanding, contributing to positive emotions and an overall sense of well-being.
