How UNICEF Kid Power Works

UNICEF Kid Power is a teacher-led experience incorporating standards-aligned lessons and activities with the world’s first Wearable-for-Good®.**

Atesha is a Kid Power student who inspires her friends and family to get active and save lives. Students like Atesha are making an impact with every step they take.

**The UNICEF Kid Power band is the first wearable device to permanently connect activity to impact.

UNICEF Kid Power is a proven way to get your students to 60 minutes of physical activity a day.*

Activate

The UNICEF Kid Power classroom kit has everything you need to inspire students to learn about malnutrition, get more active and help their peers around the world.

Go on Missions

Students go on Missions to complete standards-aligned lessons and activities, where they learn about different cultures and UNICEF’s work to help children everywhere survive and thrive.

Earn Kid Power Points

On their Missions, students get active with the Kid Power Band. The more kids move, the more points they earn, the more lives they save.

Unlock RUTF Packets

Kid Power Points unlock funding from partners, parents and fans, and funds are used by UNICEF to deliver lifesaving packets of therapeutic food to severely malnourished children around the world.

Kid Power is 100-million percent awesome sauce.
