Serve with Us
“Side By Side Kids is an amazing organization that has helped me grow and step outside of my comfort zone. I love building relationships with the kids and seeing their smiling faces when I arrive!”
- Sadie, Program Volunteer
Why Serve with SBSK?
Our mission at Side by Side Kids is to inspire and equip kids in East Austin and Oak Hill to be excellent students, make wise choices, and follow Christ through afterschool programming and community events. As a volunteer, you take part in our Mission and embody our Core Values each and every time you serve our kids, their families and our community.
Volunteer support contributes to 98% of SBSK students advancing to the next grade level, 93% of SBSK family’s spirituality being positively influenced, and 84% of AISD teachers stating SBSK students were more willing to learn.
“What I love most about volunteering with SBSK is getting to build relationships with the kids and watch as they grow in different fields of character.” - Molly, Program Volunteer
Ways to Serve
This is the heart of our ministry and the biggest way to impact kids! Serving with the our Afterschool Program means assisting children with homework, teaching them the Gospel, and participating in recreation time at one of our five schools. We ask that our after school volunteers commit to serving at least two hours once a week throughout the school year. Program runs Monday - Thursday from 3:30pm to 6:30pm.
Outside of our afterschool program, we have plenty of opportunities to serve either solo or in groups year round. These special events vary from neighborhood park days, holiday parties, and summer camps to further our connection to SBSK families and the community.
