Since 2010, Stephanie and Chris have taught children English in a rural village in Colombia. From then on they have devoted to teach others how to teach and share experiences. Chicos and Kids is about creating student leaders who are devoted to solve issues in communities through education and empowerment. 


Founders, Stephanie and Christopher Quintero were born in Maryland to two loving Colombian parents. They embrace having two different cultures and are proud Colombians. Having immigrant parents inspired them to work hard and to have core values. They are both fortunate to receive an education, and wanted to give other children the same opportunity they had. From then on, they have built this non-profit into their everyday lives.
