KIND Employment Practices

Kids in Need of Defense’s (KIND) employment practices include a commitment to ethical recruitment: KIND maintains a “no fees” recruitment policy. KIND will never ask candidates for money or charge fees as part of the application process.

Candidates should be mindful and  wary of any recruitment scams in which nefarious actors try to take advantage of job seekers by pretending to represent prominent organizations, such as KIND.
