Side by Side Kids

Partner Since: 2004

A faith-based, after-school and mentoring program anchored in East Austin’s St. John community

Side by Side Kids is a faith-based, after-school and mentoring program anchored in East Austin’s St. John community committed to “tutoring and inspiring our kids to reach academic excellence, mentoring and encouraging them to make wise choices, and sharing the love and truth of the heart-changing Gospel with them.”

All Saints has supported Side by Side Kids (formerly Community New Start) from day one. Our involvement and commitment extends far beyond financial support as many members of our congregation volunteer in the various programs, while others are active on the Side by Side Board.

There are two primary programs with which to get involved:

  • The After-School Program serves about 50 children in classrooms at T.A. Brown and J.J. Pickle Elementary Schools, focusing on academic excellence, character development, learning about the gospel, and promoting friendships and wellness.
  • The Mentoring program pairs Christian mentors with graduates of our after-school program (and other area youth) from Webb Middle School and Reagan and Lanier High Schools. Mentors serve as role models and encourage their mentees to make wise choices, excel academically, and strengthen their relationship with God.
