Every weekday, Kid Power works with Title I DC Public Schools to provide daily academic and enrichment programming to 425 students (99% of whom qualify for free or reduced-price lunch). But this isnít your average after-school program. After Academic Power Hour (mentoring and tutoring with college staff and high school volunteers), a rotating series of enrichment activities focuses on building studentsí civic engagement, leadership, and healthy behaviors. Urban gardens are paired with lessons in nutrition, cooking, and environmental science; history and citizenship lessons offer a real-life perspective through Kid Power Congress and service-learning projects; art classes integrate wellness principles like mindfulness and self-expression. Together with a five-week Summer Leadership Academy and monthly in-school wellness programming, Kid Power reaches 1,000 students each year. These kids will power our future. You can power them!
