Metro Kids

Metro Kids provides structured programs and activities for children and youth in the metro area who are considered at-risk. Our programs give these young people a safe, supportive environment and help build self-esteem and life skills.

We offer after-school programs, life skills classes, mentoring, and summer day camps. Trained youth workers lead activities focused on recreation, creative arts, team building, and community service projects. Small groups provide individual attention and a sense of belonging.

Key programs include:

  • After School Zone – Homework help, tutoring, games, and healthy snacks Monday-Friday afternoons.
  • Art Express – Arts and crafts classes to spark creativity and self-expression.
  • Club Connect – Mentoring program that matches caring adult volunteers with youth for weekly activities and friendship.
  • Camp Metro – Full day summer day camp with outdoor adventures, field trips, sports, and more.

Our structured, supportive programs guide at-risk youth towards positive choices and a brighter future. Metro Kids fills a vital need in our community.

Our Metro Kids Under the Tree From Me Program is coming again in December which allows children and youth to have a specific amount of “cash”-shopping credit to utilize with a personal shopping assistant before the holidays so the children can not only learn the importance of managing money, but also experience the joy of gift giving to family members over the holidays.

In addition, Metro Kids programming also includes holiday celebrations and special activity days to explore such hobbies as stamp collecting, Lego building and crafting for children in the community. Various events are currently hosted at both our Southside and Northside locations.

We are actively looking for property to build a youth camp.
