WHAT WE DO
Bee Me Kidz was started because we care passionately about making sure that every child, no matter what economic status they were born into, has the skills they need to succeed at school and in life.
Bee Me Kidz partners with parents, families, schools and communities to implement a four-pronged approach to building children’s and their families’ learning potential and resiliency through:
- A weekly FUN Saturday program that includes a proven social/emotional learning component and family brunch.
- Boosting children’s nutritional status by providing healthy, wholesome meals during the program and a monthly basket of fruits and vegetables plus healthy recipes for families.
- A parent education component that enhances parents’ ability to support their children’s social and emotional needs at home as well as their own well-being.
- Free babysitting for siblings during the parents support component.
To help them feel part of a group, every Bee Me Kidz child is given a free Bee Me Kidz hoodie.
In addition, each child has a chance to be the “Bee Me Kid of the Week” at least once throughout the year. On Saturday, the “Bee Me Kid of the Week” is given special tasks for which they receive acknowledgement, compliments from their program leaders, parents and other Bee Me Kidz, a “Bee Me Kid of the Week” sticker to wear and an inspirational poster to take home with their compliments.
