is for elementary school students. We meet
Tuesday and Thursday
from 3:30 to 5:30p
Kidz Club is a partnership of Take the Next Step and
City Life / Youth for Christ
We begin with healthy snacks
and a time to unwind
We begin each Kidz Club with a healthy snack and a time to unwind, talk about our day, hang out with our cool volunteers, and maybe play some table games (educational of course!)
Then we work on reading,
math, and homework
Volunteers read for at least 30 minutes with every student. Reading is the foundation for success at school.
We help with homework and if you don't have any, we have fun worksheets that improve reading and math skills.
We learn Life Skills
We learn new skills for life and how to become good members of our community.
We learn how to regulate our emotions, what to do when we're afraid, or angry...we even learn that you can bake chocolate chip cookies yourself!
We learn about Jesus
We explore the teachings of Jesus and learn about the qualities that build great character in our lives like joy, peace, kindness, integrity, generosity, not giving up, being faithful, being gentle, being the boss over our own desires...and more.
Kidz Club is open to all elementary - aged students.
We invite you to stop by to visit any Tuesday or Thursday afternoon
While we do our best to make sure no student is turned away, we often have a waiting list.
Please complete our brief information form below and we will contact you to confirm that we have space for your child.
Kidz Club doesn't stop when school is out!

none of our kids need to be embarrassed to go to school tomorrow because they are having a difficult time reading or afraid to go to school because their homework isn't finished.
We make sure Kidz Club is a safe, stable, and nuturing place for every child to grow, learn, discover their potential, explore new experiences, and have fun.
We do Kidz Club so our kids will have a chance...will have the hope for a better, healthier, safer, and more productive and fulfilling life.
We don't want our kids to become statistics - we want them to become a success!
Then there's the purely practical...
$1.00 invested in improving a child's educational outcomes from pre-K through 4th Grade will return $8.24 to society.
A student who drops out before finishing high school will cost society $755,900 over their lifetime due to the price of incarceration, public welfare, and other factors such as how much less they pay in taxes.
