Mission Statement

Education for Life.


The Swope Corridor Renaissance/Upper Room Inc is a neighborhood-based non-for-profit organization providing high-quality out-of-school education programs to low-income families in the urban area of Kansas City, MO.

Established in 1999, the Upper Room began as a Summer Academic Camp to serve some of the many school age children that reside within the 64130 zip code. Since its inception, the Upper Room has grown to serve thousands of families and youth. We have several important programs:

  • The After School Program for K-8th Graders
  • The eight week Summer Academic Camp for K-8th Graders
  • The Even Start Daycare Program for children 6 weeks - 4 years old
  • The GED Program for mothers who want to complete their High School Equivalency

The children enjoy having someone read with them and are excited about reading to you.

It's a great way to make an impact in a child's life! You can build relationships and increase a child's love for reading, and their confidence in themselves in general. Great program with flexible scheduling!
