What We Do

By giving kids something to do after school, Kids on Point exposes students to new possibilities and instills them with confidence.

In the Classroom

Kids on Point participants receive rigorous homework help sessions, academic tutoring and life skills development from dedicated volunteer mentors.

On the Court

Kids on Point students participate in daily fitness activities – primarily through instruction in the sport of squash – while learning about healthy eating and active lifestyles.

In the Community

Kids on Point promotes civic engagement by organizing monthly volunteer and service learning projects in collaboration with other charitable organizations in Charleston.
