Side by Side Kids

Side by Side Kids' mission is to inspire and equip kids in East Austin to be excellent students, make wise choices, and follow Christ. The organization is the only free, faith-based afterschool program in East Austin. It serves 300 elementary kids annually in some of the most under-resourced neighborhoods, where thousands of kids have no supervision or safe place to go after the bell rings. SBSK encourages and equips children through personalized homework help, a healthy meal, mentoring, and faith and character-building curriculum.

SBSK values the support of its partners, whether it be through volunteering, rallying others around the cause, or donating. Consider taking a tour at one of the afterschool programs, where you will have an opportunity to visit with the kids and see the impact SBSK is making in their lives.

Consider joining the Next Generation Monthly Giving Program, where your support continues to empower and inspire the next generation of leaders, today. For just $10 a month (two Starbucks lattes), you can set up a recurring gift and make a lifelong difference for the kids each month.

Side by Side Kids hosts two annual fundraising events in the fall and spring. Heart of a Lion is the largest annual fundraiser and features Tim Tebow, a two-time national champion, first-round NFL draft pick, and Heisman Trophy winner. This year's event will be hosted on October 17, 2019, at 7 pm at the new Hill Country Pavillion at the Barton Creek Resort and will feature a dinner and live auction.

Topgolf brings friends together with food, drinks, and great Yeti prizes. For more information, please feel free to contact development director Stacy Albrecht at stacy.albrecht@sidebysidekids.org, and she will be happy to answer any questions.
