Interview with Ava Steaffens, President/CEO, KidWorks...

KidWorks' "mission is to restore at-risk neighborhoods…one life at a time..KidWorks' "seeks to provide a “cradle-to-career” continuum of support for children in Santa Ana, as we recognize that at any time they are in danger of succumbing to the temptations and dangers of their neighborhood." 

Of Kidworks' enrollees, "in the 2011-2012 school year: 100% of high school graduates are college-bound, 100% of preschool graduates were assessed for kindergarten as "ready to learn" and 100% of high school juniors completed SAT prep courses." 

Goals for 2012-2013 are to "recruit 150 weekly volunteers to help kids do their homework, complete art projects, practice sports, and perform science experiments and open a fourth community center in another at-risk Santa Ana neighborhood."
