why serve with sbsk?

Our mission is to inspire and equip kids in Austin to be excellent students, make wise choices, and follow Christ through afterschool programming and community events. As a volunteer, you help carry out our mission each and every time you serve our kids, their families, and our community.

Because of volunteers like you, 98% of our students advance to the next grade level, 97% have their character positively influenced, and 80% become more willing to learn.

"Serving with Side by Side Kids has been one of my greatest blessings here in town, and the kids at J.J. Pickle have become like family to me. As someone who has always loved learning and school, helping the students with academic fundamentals like math, reading, and ESL is a true joy. But in many ways, the kids are the ones teaching me. Their full spirits and wide-eyed wonder are a constant reminder of what it means to have childlike faith." -Mackenzie
