Side by Side Kids – Seeds of Hope
He replied, “Because you have so little faith. Truly I tell you, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
Side by Side Kids is a faith-based, afterschool program anchored in East Austin. We journey side-by-side with kids from kindergarten to 5th grade, encouraging and equipping them to reach their highest God-given potential as everyday leaders and heroes of tomorrow.
Our mission is to inspire and equip kids in East Austin to be excellent students, to make wise choices, and follow Christ.
Jesus Christ is a God of hope! Just as Christ challenges and restores our hope every day, Side by Side Kids is seeking to touch the lives of many more children by continuing to be a beacon of light.
At the present time, Side by Side Kids is in the formative stages of preparing to expand its service area in East Austin. By the start of the 2015 fall semester, Side by Side Kids is preparing to share the gospel with more children in more schools. As a matter of fact, we have just secured our third elementary school!
Over the years, God has helped us build a solid foundation and today we are seeking to expand the Side by Side Kids footprint. This year, the SBSK Board of Directors decided that it’s time to add new elementary schools to our regular programming. Our goal is to serve more elementary students within the next five years.
This summer, Side by Side Kids will begin the process of adding one more school to the two we currently serve. But we can’t do this alone, so we’re inviting you to help us invest in East Austin. Our ramp up begins in June and your financial assistance could help pave the way for us to serve more children. We are seeking to raise $30,000 to help add the new school by the fall semester.
