Eligibility for the Bea’s Kids program is based on qualifying for the free lunch program in the school district being serviced. Most of Bea’s Kids youth have parents who do not speak English, have not graduated from high school, and do not understand the challenges their children face as bi-cultural citizens. These youth need an expanded support system so they can reach their full potential.
Centers are available to residents of Villas de La Colonia at 1517 Metrocrest, Carrollton; and Ventana at Valwood, 14221 Heritage Circle, Farmers Branch
The Bea’s Kids after-school tutoring program offers daily assistance through volunteer tutors who help children with their homework assignments and reinforce reading and math skills. A daily snack and juice box for healthy nutrition is also provided.
Summer camp, designed to provide fun and educational activities to students in a safe and positive environment during the long summer, is six weeks of lunches, fun, and fellowship following the students’ attendance at summer school in the mornings.
Summer camp is hosted by several church partners who allow Bea’s Kids to use their facilities. During camp, children participate in a range of educational activities including art, games and athletic activities. They also enjoy a daily lunch and snack.
We are now accepting applications for summer camp!
The Bea Hive offers after-hours activities designed to keep highly at-risk middle school and high school students in school through graduation. The program also encourages them to pursue further education such as college, technical school, or vocational training.
Weekly Hive meetings are led by a licensed youth counselor who addresses concerns and issues for teens. Discussion topics include dropout prevention, gang and drug intervention, the development of social and emotional skills, setting realistic and achievable goals, and making good decisions.
We believe in academic rewards at Bea’s Kids. Students who attain honor roll are invited to attend special field trips (i.e., dinner at Medieval Times, Fun Fest, Maverick, Stars and Rangers games, etc). Also, there is a bi-weekly opportunity to attend “Yak ‘n Snack” to hang out, play games, “chill” and grab a snack.
Yak ’n Snack is held every other Friday for those “achievers” who have accumulated the most points for their daily performance in Behavior, Effort and Attendance (BEA).
