Standing Strong for Health
Imagine a world where everyone has the means and knowledge to make healthy choices. Where high-quality, affordable care is accessible to all. Where community members are given the support they need to live full, healthy lives. And where everyone with the drive to make a difference has an equal opportunity to do so. This is our vision. Ambitious? You bet. Achievable? Absolutely. And it's a goal that each and every one of us works to support every day.

Making Investments That Matter
We are problem solvers and change makers who refuse to sit quietly. So we’re standing up, making noise, and advocating for the total health of our members, communities, and planet. Explore some of the ways we’re making a difference every day:
Summer Youth Employment Programs
Also known as KP LAUNCH (Learn About Unlimited New Careers in Healthcare), Kaiser Permanente's Summer Youth Employment Program provides underserved or at-risk high school students with supportive and meaningful employment experiences in the health care field.
KP Thriving Schools
Partnering to create a culture of health and wellness for K–12 students, staff, and educators, Kaiser Permanente provides resources and support that promote healthy eating, active listening, and social/emotional wellness.
MLK Day of Service
Every year on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, hundreds of KP employees across the country honor Dr. King's commitment to community by giving back to local charities, schools, and organizations.
Educational Theatre Celebrates 30 Years
If you grew up in the KP state in the 1980s or later, chances are you've seen at least one of our educational theatre performances. Recently celebrating 30 years of community education, the troupe continues to awe and inspire.
Committed to Improving Health Around the World, and for the World Itself
From our members, to the world we inhabit, we take our responsibility as a leader in proactive health seriously. Our vision of 2025 raises the bar on corporate environmental stewardship — not that you'd expect anything less of us!
