Mission: Kids growing up in poverty often miss out on life lessons--how to behave well, make good decisions, build healthy relationships. WINGS instills those missing life lessons by weaving a comprehensive social and emotional education into a fresh and fun after school program. Kids get the life lessons they need to succeed and be happy--and they get a safe place to call home after school.
