Help us support this life-changing program for children on Austin's East Side!

Founded in 1996, Side by Side Kids (SBSK) provides Austin's only free faith-based afterschool program, giving students in East Austin–many of whom are at risk or in need–a safe space to gather, a warm meal, homework help, playtime, and a curriculum designed to meet academic, social, and emotional needs. Side by Side Kids serves six public schools and approximately 280 students a week in an area where 96% of families are economically disadvantaged.

Our theme this year, "Heart of a Lion," is inspired by the Chronicles of Narnia series by C.S. Lewis. Literature can inspire big dreams, teaching children to become courageous, creative, and strong. At Side by Side Kids, we encourage and share this love of learning, working to inspire and equip our students to reach their highest potential.

Encouraging Hearts. Inspiring Minds.
