About

The Kid Street Learning Center (KSLC) is a charter school and after school program that was developed to provide a holistic approach to helping children without homes and other at-risk youth, break the cycle of low self-esteem and poverty. The lives of children who are homeless are riddled with chaos and trauma. The vast majority of services offered to the homeless are not directed toward the support of these children's very specific emotional, social and educational needs. KSLC brings about the opportunity to develop trust from within the child to empower him/her to believe that they are special in their own way, that their present situation is a circumstance beyond their control and not a life style of their choosing. Kid Street Learning Center (KSLC) provides a free after-school program and other opportunities to children from low-income families who attend our school and other local schools. The KSLC program is offered every weekday from 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. (Monday-Friday) at our location in Railroad Square. Our center serves nearly 80 children, from Transitional kindergarten through middle school. Besides helping children, you also get job experience. This is a way to get involved with the community, and have a lot of fun at the same time. Also we are always looking for different areas where you can help-so if you don't see something you want to do-email me a new area of interest.
