Kaleos are the backbone of Citikidz. They are the called, connected, committed leaders in their cities, churches, communities, and corporate spaces who engage in restorative work for the glory of God and the good of the people evidenced by activity pointing to Christ. We call that redemptive business. They also attend camp with students in the summer to relax, refresh, and reenergize. We could not be who we are, nor do what we do without them. Several kaleos serve on a committee that we call the Kaleo Council, providing us advice, wisdom, and insight to the needs in urban areas so that we can continue to provide relevant programming that fills the needs of all who come.
