Kidz Zone 

As the first Kidz Zone established by Orlando Mayor Buddy Dyer, Parramore Kidz Zone (PKZ) and Holden Heights Kidz Zone (HHKZ) have been improving the well-being of children in Orlando’s highest poverty neighborhood for more than a decade. City funding is invested annually in partner programs located throughout the neighborhood, aimed at:

  • Increasing the number of young children attending high-quality preschool programs

  • Building positive parenting skills

  • Mitigating family economic instability

  • Enhancing children’s physical health and wellness

  • Supporting academic success among elementary, middle and high school children

  • Increasing the number of youth entering – and completing – post-secondary education

  • Keeping older youth out of trouble and on a positive track toward social and economic success.
