Kids Connect

Where Kids Can Be Kids

Sometimes, a kid just needs to be a kid. Kids Connect gives children affected by epilepsy (either themselves or a loved one) an opportunity to meet other young people from the area, with trained volunteers and staff helping to create a safe environment where kids can connect and find common ground in the fight against epilepsy.

From time to time, Kids Connect will also meet with our Young Leaders Network.


  • 7-12-year-olds (developmental age; children a bit younger and older who have the maturity of a typical 7-12 year old are welcome)


  • Kids Connect meetings are underway in Maine, Rhode Island, and Massachusetts; New Hampshire is in development.


Do I have to attend every activity?

  • No - but we hope you’ll want to!

Activities for Parents?

  • During activities parents often congregate with an Epilepsy Foundation New England staff member or volunteer to share stories and ideas over coffee.
