Nutritious food, quality education, and healthy adult relationships are three of the building blocks needed to help children be successful in life. Kidcelerate strives to provide quality programs that focus on those building blocks. Current programs include The Learning Hub and the Green Thumb Project at The Bridge, The Reading & Mentoring Network, and Kids Meal Network. All children should have the tools to succeed in life, regardless of their socio-economic status, and Kidcelerate strives to help children obtain that success.
