“At Kidango, we want every staff member to feel like they are part of a family. We are constantly seeking out new ways to ensure every team member feels appreciated, empowered, and inspired by their work. “
–Scott Moore, Executive Director
Most of our staff work in small teams, so it’s easy to forget that Kidango is over 500 strong. We are a results-oriented, open-door organization that constantly seeks new ways to delight and inspire our team members.
We hold staff events during the year such as Wellness Day – a day-long all-staff retreat focused on ensuring all team members have the tools they need to do well physically, mentally, emotionally, and financially.
