About Dallas Afterschool

Founded in 2007 as a nonprofit, Dallas Afterschool’s mission is to improve the quality of afterschool and summer programs in our community. Working with 400 staff members at 120 sites throughout the Dallas community, Dallas Afterschool informs, trains, supports and evaluates programs collectively serving 9,000 K-12 grade students.

Wonder Kits started in 2012 after Dallas Afterschool gathered feedback from partner sites about the challenges of implementing larger curriculum in an out of school time setting. The main issues programs faced were:

• Lack of time for part-time staff to learn and prep new complicated activities
• Use of rotating volunteers who wanted to lead activities, but were intimidated by bulky curriculum plans
• Limited time to do hands-on activities in addition to facilitating traditional program offerings like homework help

In response, Dallas Afterschool created and designed Wonder Kits to fit the challenges and needs of flexible learning environments like after school programs. Powered by curiosity, Wonder Kits are ready to ignite a love of learning with only 10 minutes of prep time. Wonder Kits contain materials needed to run a hands-on, engaging activity for up to 25 students and feature easy to follow instructions, a how-to video and tips to make every project a learning opportunity for both activity leaders and students.

Through the generous support of United Way of Metropolitan Dallas and Fluor, Dallas Afterschool is expanding Wonder Kits to inspire more children during out of school time with hands-on learning opportunities. By ordering a Wonder Kit, you are playing a vital role in giving children across Texas, and beyond, access to informal STEM, Language Arts, and Arts. Thank you for helping Dallas Afterschool make out of school time better!

Wonder Kits are assembled by clients of Citizens Development Center. Dallas Afterschool is proud to partner with Citizens Development Center, a 501 (c) (3) nonprofit, work-training center and employment placement organization for adults with intellectual, mental health and/or physical disabilities. Their mission is to empower men and women to achieve their highest level of independence and employment. Your purchase will help two nonprofit agencies provide job training to adults and hands-on learning activities to low-income children in North Texas. Together, we make a difference!
