MPowering Kids is an after-school program providing tutoring, mentoring, and cultural enrichment programs for motivated students in under-served communities.

We follow the students from 4th grade through high school graduation and focus on academics, cultural enrichment, and community service to help prepare our students for college.

We serve promising, yet economically disadvantaged students who do not otherwise have access to after-school tutoring and cultural enrichment programs to enhance education land learning.

Federal Studies show that after-school programs have a direct impact on students’ academic achievements, as well as their ability to avoid gangs, teenage pregnancy, and being a victim of crime.

All of the students who participate in the MPowering Kids program are considered “at risk.” However, each student has demonstrated strong academic potential, sincere motivation, and a commitment to participate in the nine year program.

MPowering Kids students have consistently outperformed their peers on standardized tests and have achieved major academic gains. To read more about MPowering Kids’ Academic Gains, click here.

The program is conducted on the students’ school campus immediately following the school day, and students move through the program from year to year until they graduate from high school.

There is no other after-school program in the area that follows each student from fourth though twelfth grade and involves a rich source of volunteers from the local community.

Why is MPowering Kids Effective?

Once accepted into the MPowering Kids program, students and their families work with MPowering Kids staff and volunteers for NINE years. The curriculum and structure of the MPowering Kids program is designed to create a culture of achievement, characterized by high academic and behavioral standards. MPowering Kids fosters a commitment to academic and personal excellence and a love of learning that lasts a lifetime. Students are encouraged to develop their potential and leadership skills, and to give back to others through community service.

The U.S. Department of Labor states that, “students who are the first in their families to go to college, end poverty in their family lines forever.”
