parents and educators
We started the Jonas Brothers' Change for the Children Foundation to support programs that motivate and inspire children to face adversity with confidence, determination and the will to succeed. Read more below and see how you can get involved!

We believe kids have the power to make a difference. We inspire, empower and celebrate a generation of doers: kids who recognize the need to do something, believe in their ability to get it done, and then take action. Help your child take action.
