About Rupert’s Kids

RK AT Work 1Rupert’s Kids is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization that stems directly from the vision of Rupert Boneham, four-time Survivor participant and lifetime philanthropist.

Our participants face many obstacles from their previous life choices.  We provide mentoring as well as the opportunity to learn work ethic, social skills, and life competencies for future success.  We give them help and hope as they face the struggles of life and as they learn to become a productive and healthy member of society.
