What is the Capital Kids Program? Established in 2000, the Capital Kids Program was a new model for after school programming, designed to provide participants with a safe place to learn and play once school day was over. By incorporating a trained staff with state of the art technology, high expectations and performance standards, the program was also designed to help improve student's academic achievement.

Where does the Capital Kids Program take place? The Capital Kids Program is available in the four community centers listed below:
Beatty Community Center

How does the Capital Kids Program Help? The children receive a nutritious snack and/or hot meal daily upon their arrival to the community center after school. Equally, the children get academic assistance, including help with their homework, science projects, literacy tutoring and computer math. Additionally, enrichment activities such as cooking, field trips, drama and art are also introduced to the children in the Capital Kids Program. Furthermore, prevention programs in anger management, substance abuse, violence and peer mediation are introduced. Children will enjoy recreation and socialization through basketball, board games, outdoor play and group activities. Last, the Capital Kids Program promotes a strong family involvement, including family fun nights, resource referrals, parent/ staff conferences, and newsletters.
