     KEDS (Kids Explore and Discover ‘SC) is APO’s (learn more about APO below) bi-annual philanthropy event in which students from various schools and organizations from all over the Los Angeles area are invited to come together for a fun day of learning. We have prepared a series of hands-on workshops throughout the morning along with a FREE visit to the Natural History Museum in the afternoon. Our hope is that this variety of workshops will engage the students, kindling a passion for learning, fostering creativity and encouraging curiosity. Last semester, we were able to host 100 students of all ages. After the event, we received great feedback, that they loved getting to spend a day on the USC campus with current USC students and would love the opportunity to do it again. The purpose of KEDS is to give students from underprivileged backgrounds and various cultural backgrounds the opportunity to explore a variety of subjects through engaging workshops to help foster their drive for education. We hope that by incorporating fun into our workshops, we can instill a curiosity and love for learning in the kids from a young age. We hope that this early introduction to the value of education at a college campus will also inspire them to continue fueling their passion for learning and pursue higher education. Past workshops have included a recycling relay to teach the students how to properly sort trash and recyclables, rocket launching experiments to teach aerodynamics, and art projects.

  The day will include:

    • A free trip to the Natural History Museum
    • Fun and education workshops about science, art, and more!
    • Free Lunch!!

Hosted by USC’s Alpha Phi Omega – Alpha Kappa Chapter Alpha Phi Omega is a coeducational national service organization that provides its members the chance to develop leadership skills through service projects on their campus, in their community and across the nation. While other groups volunteer, making the world a better place is not their primary focus. This is why more than 400,000 students have chosen APO since our founding in 1925. The USC chapter is called Alpha Kappa chapter and we aim to bring service opportunities throughout the local Los Angeles community to students on campus. Our chapter has over 100 actives who are passionate about community service. Whether it is mentoring local K-12 students or helping clean up beaches, our members wish to impact the community in a positive way. Visit our main website here.
