Mission: The Arts have a unique ability to engage and motivate children. The mission of Kids Excel El Paso is to use its distinctive dance programs to help children develop discipline, a standard or excellence, and self-confidence that will positively impact their education and all aspects of their lives - one dance step at a time!
Direct beneficiaries per year: Over 2200 children are participating in the 10-11 school year in 30 weekly classes for the entire 4th grade.
Geographic areas served: El Paso County
Programs: In-School classes for the entire 4th grade. Kids Excel is not a pull out program.
The dedication shown by the staff of Kids Excel towards the mission and clients served is stellar. When I support Kids Excel, I can actually SEE the impact that my contribution makes, not only on individual children served, but also on the entire school population and even the community. In the years that I have supported Kids Excel, their programs have directly served over 12,000 children, and indirectly served 60,000 more. Their Sponsor a Child program is affordable philanthropy at its best. For only $300 per year, I am able to provide weekly programming and performance opportunities for one underserved child in El Paso. Keep up the great work!!
