Our Initiatives

We create new chances for all kids to grow in self-confidence and worth — all during months and times of day when statistics show they’re typically most at risk and falling behind.



After School

With the Austin Independent School District and our partners, we provide high-quality enrichment 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 many, 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 academics. It’s not just about athletics. Our children not only learn how to do better in school, they find new ways to ignite their passion — and to engage in learning and life. 



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.


Make a gift today and join a group of supporters and friends who are working to  give every child every chance to find what they were born to do.
