Kids Coming Together is an organization that sprung to life from two brothers’ desire to help other kids in need of academic and social support. Darian and Shay Mauriello both feel very fortunate to have a great support group helping them achieve their academic and social goals, and they want to give back to other kids by being a support to them in return.
Darian and Shay have witnessed many children in their neighborhoods struggle not just with basic academic and social concerns like after school homework or peer pressure and bullying, but also the basic virtues of building and maintaining strong self-esteem. Darian and Shay understand that being a kid is hard, and they want to be actively engaged in helping kids in any areas they might be struggling with.
Through their volunteer work, they create support groups and after school forums to tackle these issues. They volunteer their time assisting with homework, helping kids work through their issues, or even just lending a friendly ear. Sometimes, the best resource for kids is to be exposed to other compassionate kids to help them with the challenges they face and Darian and Shay, and their organization Kids Coming Together , want to be there for those kids and for you.
