Cooking Up Character is a Character and Leadership club for kids where they learn a new skill across many disciplines (taught by subject matter experts) and apply it immediately in a Service Project to make a big difference in our world!
We build passionate leaders and mobilize them to transform their communities through service.
Cooking Up Character students learn to lead by first learning how to serve.
Cooking Up Character was founded by Susan Poteat in August 2003. Susan previously ran a volunteer service club for her children, as a character-building service project club, and realized the impact she was able to have. Thus, Cooking Up Character was born.
To this date, Cooking Up Character branches have been in homeschool groups, elementary schools, the YMCA and universities.
Our dedicated team of volunteers is committed to helping others. We all come from different backgrounds from elementary to graduate school, but we all believe that serving others and treating one another with love will unify the world.
