Kids4Sports was founded by young community organizer Arden Pala with the help of friends and family. Early on, he volunteered at soup kitchens, which sparked his passion to give back to the community and take action.
Arden’s first charitable project was to produce and direct a documentary that shed light to the homeless situation in San Diego.
He named his documentary “A Second Chance” after hearing stories of people from all walks of life. He believes that when given a second chance they can get back on track and said, time spent with the homeless and the organization that supports them gives him hope.
“I wrote it, I directed it, and I thought of the idea. I decided to make this documentary so I can hep the city, not just the city, but homelessness in general and all of the United States”
The documentary won many awards including: SoCal Film Award, Creators Film Festival Award, American Youth Film Festival
Arden is also an author – when he was just 8 years old.
Arden Pala is the author of the “Adventures of Noah’s Flying Car” book series (3 books published), available on Amazon and Kindle.
All proceeds benefit low-income youth.
