Each year, over 1,200 Bay Area children participate in Kid Stock's musical theater programs. We're proud to serve such a vast group of children, but many of the kids who could benefit from our unique brand of musical theater and social-emotional education are unable to participate due to financial barriers. Research shows that social-emotional learning not only improves achievement, but it also increases pro-social behaviors (such as kindness, sharing, and empathy), improves student attitudes toward school, and reduces depression and stress among students. That's a huge impact for all kids!
Our reACTion initiative aims to break through financial barriers and share our programs with kids of all backgrounds. Thanks to the support of community members like you we have been able to provide scholarships to 20 students from August to November. With your help, we can continue to provide scholarships for students in our current after-school program in San Francisco's Mission District for our Spring Semester! From now through November 28, make a donation and even become a participant. Together, we can work toward achieving our goal of ensuring that all children have a chance to shine!
