Changing the world, One Afternoon at a time... for 15 Years!

 

Our mission is to help low-income and youth of color to develop personally, academically, creatively and professionally within a nurturing community.

Through culturally relevant programming and services, we foster agency in youth and first-generation college students to navigate and overcome systemic barriers in their education and careers. Kid City’s college access and persistence, career readiness, and music programs are responsive to the holistic needs of youth and young adults and embrace the unique voices and experiences of each of them.

 

What We Offer

College Access & Persistence

We provide crucial college access programs and support current and soon-to-be first-generation college students need to navigate higher education - including their parents and families who are experiencing what it's like for to have a child in college for the first time.
