Look Who's Talking

“Educators cannot do their work in isolation, we must form meaningful partnerships; and our partnership with Kids on Point has resulted in positive outcomes for our participating students who came from the lowest income households in Charleston, and for our own College of Charleston students and faculty members..”

– Frances Welch, Dean of the School of Education, Health and Human Performance, College of Charleston

“There’s one certainty when it comes to youth development programs that aim to place kids on a path to college: You need a hook. This is especially true for underprivileged children who may not see a college education in their future. Before you can expose them to what college is, what it is not and how it can change their lives, you must first capture their attention.”

– Dr. Michael Hemphill, Professor of Kinesiology, UNC Greensboro
