This program provides after school tutoring and social emotional support, summer enrichment programs, family services program, and community outreach in several apartment communities throughout Dallas and Arlington.
Tutoring - Their after school tutoring program focuses on the core learning subjects of math, language arts, and reading for students in grades K-8. Our TEKS (Texas Essential Knowledge & Skills)-based curriculum, PATHWAYS, parallels what students are learning in their everyday public-school classrooms. They use a “hands-on” approach to teaching, ensuring assistance to all types of learners.
After School Social Emotional Support - At Kids-U, they are working to make sure we are emphasizing SEL strategies in our tutoring program through our Character Cures curriculum and through the use of Sanford Harmony SEL curriculum. Character Cures provides hands-on interactive instruction that allows collaboration and active learning of character-building skills. Sanford Harmony, a free SEL tool provided by National University, is embedded into each program day through conversation starters and team-building activities that can be facilitated by students and moderated by educators.
Summer Enrichment Camps are held.
Family Services Program - Their family services program extends our educational reach to the adults of these communities providing: ESL & GED classes, Adult Computer Literacy Programs, Financial Literacy Programs and Parenting workshops.
Community Outreach is provided.
