Founded 2011

Have you noticed a few extra high school kids (and occasional college students) spinning around Wolff's Flea Market Palatine on our special event days? They are part of our community outreach program that benefits local children, their families and all other children who attend our market. High School Kids 4 Kids has amassed a solid footing at the market and we couldn't sponsor our fun events without them.

Our special events are family friendly and attract parents with small children, many from Spanish speaking families. Additionally, our sellers bring their own children to the market week after week and these events led by older kids are just the diversion they need during the long work day.

High School Kids 4 Kids volunteers work together as a team and shine naturally as they communicate in English and Spanish and also enjoy themselves as the kids they still are. To date, we have welcomed 20 high school and college volunteers to our events.
