Our Initiatives

We create new chances for all kids to grow in literacy, STEM, art and sports — all during months and times of day when statistics show they’re typically most at risk and falling behind.



After School

Together with the Austin Independent School District and our grantees, we create exceptional experiences for children every day after the bell.


Spring Break

Each spring we take 4th and 5th graders on a three-day, two-night camping trip. For most, it's their first overnight experience away from home.



We’ve handcrafted a free, six-week program to keep children mentally and physically active during the summer.



Focusing on the Whole Child

It’s not just about athletics. It’s not just about academics. It’s about creating those eye-opening moments when children discover something they do well.



We help children understand how the world works and how to solve problems.


We help children know how they feel and how other people feel.


We help children stay physically fit and healthy.
