Children & Youth Programs
“It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.”- Frederick Douglass
Reconciliation Outreach offers an alternative to gangs and street life for children and teens. The children and youth programs are designed to develop positive character traits by addressing attitudes before they become behavior. Most of the children come from broken homes, some live with grandparents and others have parents who are incarcerated. Reconciliation Outreach’s Children & Youth Programs are designed to end the cycle of poverty and addiction for inner city children. Special events include cookouts, roller skating, swimming, and other adult-supervised activities.
Reconciliation Outreach After School Program serves children ages three through twelve.
These children qualify as at-risk, special needs, economically disadvantaged, and live in the inner city of Dallas. The after-school program consists of faith-based mentoring, and character building. The children also receive one-on-one tutoring to increase their grade point average as a preventive measure to decrease the dropout rate. Texas Education Agency (TEA) statistics show that the area surrounding Reconciliation Outreach Ministries has a 75% dropout rate. The after school program has been successful in raising the grade point average of all its regular attendees.
Reconciliation Outreach summer camp program serves children ages three through eighteen. The camps are designed to promote a healthy alternative to a summer in the inner city. The camps provide fun and activities throughout the summer. Kids Across America Kamp is one of the many camps available for children.
