Proven ideas and funding for your community

Nickelodeon believes in the power of kids to create change in themselves, their communities, and the world. Nickelodeon’s Our World helps kids realize their agency and become the changemakers our communities need. This fund, supported by Nickelodeon, is dedicated to empowering kids with resources and support to bring to life projects that might otherwise go unfunded. To celebrate Earth Day, we are accepting applications for projects related to environmental sustainability throughout April and May. Working with a grown-up co-leader, kids will actively lead these projects and have the chance to shape their communities for the better.
