Robert F. Kennedy Children’s Action Corps is a leader in child welfare and juvenile justice in Massachusetts. Every year, we help hundreds of children, youth, and their families deal successfully with behavioral and emotional issues at facilities throughout the state.

We bring compassion and creativity to all we do and provide a stable and nurturing environment in which children heal, learn, grow, and succeed.
The Rodman Ride for Kids is an all-day cycling event in which riders choose to complete a 25- or 50-mile non-competitive route through southeastern Massachusetts to raise money for at-risk children. Every September, more than 1,500 cyclists participate in the Ride for Kids, which has raised over $180 million to benefit 50 Massachusetts child-welfare agencies, including Robert F.

In 1969, a group of young leaders decided to take on Robert F. Kennedy’s call to action by working to improve the lives of children and families through care, treatment, education and advocacy. Now, 50 years later, they reflect on what motivated them to create an organization built on the legacy of Robert F. Kennedy. Watch the video here.
