Mission Statement

The mission of this organization is to provide educational learning opportunities to elementary school aged children (specifically, but not limited to low-income children) beyond their school day through after school activities, summer camps, and weekend/holiday adventures in the Austin and surrounding areas. These programs will engage and enrich children in life skill and academic subject areas that they may or may not experience through home or school.

Description

ATX Kids Club offers After School Adventures and Clubs that specifically focus on exposing children to the large variety of cultural landmarks in the Austin area, as well as teaching life skill activities (cooking, sewing, socialization).
