East Atlanta Kids Club
East Atlanta Kids Club is a nonprofit, out-of-school tutoring, mentoring and enrichment program for under-resourced girls and boys ages 7 to 17. The club was formed in 1998 by local residents hoping to give youth who otherwise have limited after-school and summertime options a safe and stimulating place to play, to learn and to express themselves under the supervision of caring adults. Our program began with a dozen youth and a handful of community volunteers. We now offer a rich variety of educational and recreational activities and mentoring opportunities to more than 100 youth each year, free of charge.
Our program is based at Brownwood Park Recreation Center in East Atlanta, a city-owned facility that we now manage. We collaborate with the Atlanta Dept. of Parks, Recreation and Cultural Affairs and more than a dozen other key partners to provide more and higher-quality educational and recreational opportunities for youth each year.
