Kids at Hope

Kids at Hope is a national not-for-profit organization committed to the belief that all children can succeed, NO EXCEPTIONS! Its cultural framework is designed to rally all caring adults around the strengths, assets, talents, intelligence and characteristics each child and youth possess and to demonstrate how those skills can support their future success. The Kids at Hope movement is about seeing children at hope rather than at risk and creating a culture that supports its children through action, consistency and inclusiveness. It also ensures that every child has a sustainable relationship with a caring adult who helps them articulate their goals and dreams for the future and provides opportunities for success.
Kids at Hope is an initiative of the Roundtable of St. Lucie County, Inc. The Early Learning Coalition of St. Lucie County is proud to join organizations such as the Children’s Services Council in bringing Kids at Hope to local children.
Coalition employees are trained Kids at Hope "treasure hunters,” adults committed to searching for all the talents, skills and intelligence that exist in all children and youth.
For more information about Kids at Hope, contact Shaniek Maynard, Executive Director, Roundtable of St. Lucie County, at 772-871-5880.

Glow Bowling Birthday Party

Join the folks at the Early Learning Coalition of St. Lucie County for a Glow Bowling Birthday Party at Superplay in Port St. Lucie on Wednesday, July 31, from 7-9 PM. Your $10 admission includes two games of bowling and bowling shoes, birthday cake & lemonade, all to celebrate the 20th birthday of the Early Learning Coalition, in support of early childhood education, in St. Lucie County.

No bowling pledge sheets needed here as this is a P-A-R-T-Y not a bowl-a-thon, but you can bring the whole family out for glowingly great time.

We want you to party like it's 1999, which is when the ELC was established to promote early childhood education and administer the free Voluntary Pre-K program in Florida.
