Kids in Motion (KIM), an after-school, academic enrichment program for more than 100 unduplicated children ages 5-12 and 65 parents from low-income families. KIM gives children the support that they need to achieve and surpass grade level skills. AFLC provides emergency financial assistance, notary and translation services to our KIM participants.
Mondays through Fridays, children are picked-up from eight local public schools and brought to our community center to continue the learning process. Tutoring and creative activities led by a team of paid and volunteer staff members provide this vital care for 44 weeks of the school year. Our objective is to empower children to achieve greater academic success by giving them the individualized attention that they need to reach or surpass grade level skill sets.
Parents of Kids in Motion students are required to participate in our monthly Parenting Education Classes to support their child's academic process and to make the family unit stronger. KIM offers elective classes in Nurturing Families, Financial Literacy, and intergenerational classes in Family Literacy.
