KEEN is a national, nonprofit volunteer-led organization that provides one-to-one recreational opportunities for children and young adults with developmental and physical disabilities at no cost to their families and caregivers. KEEN's mission is to foster the self-esteem, confidence, skills and talents of its athletes through non-competitive activities, allowing young people facing even the most significant challenges to meet their individual goals.

We Kicked Off 2014 with Our 1st Annual KEEN OLYMPICS!
KEEN New York, along with the NYC Department of Parks & Recreation's 54th Street Recreation Center and New York Cares Teen Service Team, kicked off 2014 with our first KEEN Olympics event! Nearly 60 Athletes and well over 100 Volunteers came together to participate in Olympics-themed stations in the gymnasium and to complete Olympics-themed crafts at our KEEN Carnival. Each Athlete was given a medal to take home during our "Prouds" circle and each Volunteer left knowing they had made a big difference in the community.
