Founded in 2013, Smart Kids, Inc. was established to assist K-12 students that live and attend school in low-to-moderate income demographic areas within the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan Area with 1:1 tutoring. We are a public 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that provides academic 1:1 tutoring through both The Tutor Me Program and Explore St. Louis Summer Camp. For the past nine years, Smart Kids, Inc. has successfully helped over 1000 students through our programs. Even throughout the pandemic, we were still able to navigate through those tough times and provide our program services virtually. As for the Explore St. Louis Summer Camp, this past summer was our first time in two years, to have our camp open in person.
The populations that we serve are students that live and attend school in low-to-moderate demographic areas of St. Louis County and St. Louis City. 90%-100% of students that we serve from ages 5-18 receive free lunch (per their school demographics) and/or the families of these students are receiving some type of state assistance like food stamps, childcare assistance, health care coverage, and/or TANF. The students that we serve, their parents/guardians cannot financially afford the expenses of our program services on their own. In addition, these students are primarily from single-parent households and the parent is working multiple low-paying jobs to make ends meet while the other children are helping to raise their siblings. We want to offer those families that are struggling with everyday life needs especially when it comes to their children's educational needs.

DIVERSITY, EQUITY, INCLUSION
Smart Kids, Inc. engages with a lot of students, volunteers, and staff members of different ethnic groups. It is with great understanding that all participants recognize the importance of working side by side with people from different backgrounds. Our team deals with diversity everyday in the workplace, when providing our program services to students with the Greater St. Louis region. We make it a priority to discuss, implement, and practice the importance of policies and procedures of diversity training. We never want to make feel uncomfortable when participating in our organization.
Being that we all come from different backgrounds at Smart Kids, Inc., it is understood that we have great equity at all times. One of our first priorities is to treat everyone with respect and dignity. We also provide the same opportunities to enhance the student’s educational growth.
As an organization that deals with a lot of diverse students with different backgrounds, we want everyone to feel comfortable and for them to be themselves. It is already hard for students to seem perfect with social media telling them what is perfect and what it not. That is not our environment and we strive to make it a better experience when participating in our programs. We have all walks of life that we work hand in hand with and we aim for them to be their full selves. Being yourselves and being comfortable here at Smart Kids, Inc. makes it easier for you to be successful and really learn what you need better through our tutoring sessions.
