Thank you for your interest in the Kids at Heart Program! COVID-19 has presented so many challenges for families and students.
The Kids at Heart program offers tutoring and mentoring for low-income children in grades Kindergarten through 12th. Most of our students live below the poverty line, and many speak English as a second language. Your participation in the lives of these children is significant. Many of our students struggle to do well in school, but the outcome of our combined efforts is priceless. With a judicious and compassionate mentor by their side, they will have a greater chance to succeed.
