Our mission is to empower children of all ages to work with their caregivers to build relationships and strengthen the Milwaukee community through partnerships and service experiences in an inclusive environment.


Our vision is to instill the belief in our children that they are responsible for and capable of being dynamic and change-making citizens within their community.


Toddlers and Kids on a Mission strives to provide an environment where all children and families feel safe and affirmed, valued and reflected. We are unaffiliated with any faith traditions or other organizations. We partner with diverse, established, and effective organizations within Milwaukee that, like us, recognize the capability of children to make change, serve others, and build relationships.

How It Works

We offer affordable and frequently free activities for participants. Our missions are scheduled to fit the needs of our partnering organizations and families.  We do not have a set time or date that we meet for every event (except for our playdates).  At least one event a month is scheduled and we make a strong effort to schedule weekday, after-school, and weekend events.

We have a large base of young volunteers but some of those children are now school-age which means we plan those after-school and weekend events to span a wide age-range for our toddlers and kids.  We encourage parents and kids to create their own mission based on their passions and interests.  See our missions accomplished page for stories and photos of past missions.
