The Kids Can Do! program was created in 1989. The premise behind Kids Can Do! is to expose area youth to higher education by involving them in campus events and activities. Mentors strive to educate their child about the value of a college education and help them to understand their responsibility in obtaining that goal. Kids Can Do! also aims to sponsor educational field trips and activities for mentors and their mentees. You can reach Kids Can Do! at email@example.com.

In 2011 Gavin Beaudry ’12, with the collaboration of the Community Involvement and Action Center, created a music tutoring and band after-school program for kids at McCarver Elementary School. Completely free for the children, the program offers two days a week of music instruction—one day for private tutoring, the other to be used as a full band rehearsal. All instruments being used have been donated, along with the time and talents of the tutors and band instructor.
Gavin, who worked in the CIAC prior to his graduation in 2012 is currently working at McCarver Elementary School in his role as in the Americorps program at Peace Community Center. Kids 4 Music is now under the umbrella of CIAC and the Coordinator for the program is Outreach Coordinator Emily Brown. If you are interested in participating as a volunteer in the program or if you have an instrument you'd like to donate, contact Emily at email@example.com.
