Knowledge is Powerful in Literacy (KPL) Program is a two day per week, after school program that focuses on academic and social/emotional development. Students participate in educational activities that enhance proficiency in areas such as reading, communication, financial literacy, and STEAM. Students also participate in field trips to have an interactive learning experience in history and STEAM. The goal of this program is to equip students with skills that accelerate their journey to success.

Research supports that students learning acceleration needs to be supported with a literacy program focused on building vocabulary, fluency, and comprehension. Stronger vocabulary understanding is directly related to higher reading proficiency. Underdeveloped vocabulary acquisition is responsible for 70% of reading comprehension challenges among students in grades K to 5.

In addition to literacy development, students will participate in financial literacy programming once a week through standardized curriculum and/or community partnerships. Students will observe presentations from staff and community organizations, in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Math.

Mission Statement

The mission of Kids on the Move for Success believes that there are many issues that contribute to the success of children. For children to succeed, they must feel safe, must be transported to a world beyond their everyday life, learn that STEAM (science, technology, engineering, arts and math) fields are available to all (African American and girls) and that giving back to the community is important in learning acceptance and developing leadership skills. Kids on the Move for Success believes compassion, confidence and control are foundational elements in the success of children now and in the future. Our programs are designed to be mobile and dynamic allowing us to impact communities at the local, state and national level.

Description

Kids on the Move for Success strives to provide underserved children the educational opportunities to see the world through a new set of eyes. Our organization has awarded educational scholarships to students of all ages from kindergarten to graduate school.
