Smart Kids, Inc. is a public 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that has developed and operated two programs underneath our umbrella: The Tutor Me Program (TMP) and Explore St. Louis Summer Camp (ESSC). Smart Kids, Inc. was created to help end the repeated cycles of poverty through education and help future leaders become more successful.

The Tutor Me Program's mission is: We are committed to increasing the learning capacity of every child by helping them realize their full potential. The Tutor Me Program provides 1:1 sustainable tutoring and academic support programming to at-risk and low-to-moderate K-12 students in the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan Area. The TMP provides 1:1 tutoring/mentoring, homework help, charter development, and STEM activities from September - May. This program is greatly completed and successful with the help of our Community Partners at Saint Louis University (SLU), University Missouri of St. Louis (UMSL), and Webster University. Through our partnerships, we recruit college students completing their practicums, field/clinical hours, internships, Co-Op Programs, general volunteer projects, Federal Work-Study Programs., and Sorority/Fraternity projects/programs. College students are recruited as Student Tutors in the Tutor Me Program.

Over the years, we have successfully serviced over 500 students academically through the Tutor Me Program. Over the years, our program was implemented at the Urban Impact Center (St. Louis City - Lincoln University), the University City School District at Barbara C. Jordan Elementary School, the Hazelwood School District, and Jennings School District at Woodland Elementary School. Our school-age partners include Normandy Schools Collaborative, The Leadership School, and the Missouri Family Court-Juvenile Detention Center. A goal is to partner with other school districts and charter schools within the Greater St. Louis Metropolitan Area. This will allow us to reach, tutor, and successfully provide the Tutor Me Program our services to more K-12 students. Our other program is Explore St. Louis Summer Camp is a co-ed summer day camp that serves ages 5-13. Our mission is to provide campers the opportunity to explore St. Louis through different events, exhibits, programs, and field trips outside of their neighborhoods. These opportunities allow campers to explore performances, shows, community events, and places. Activities include Arts & Crafts/DIY projects, STEM activities, financial literacy, computer enhancement skills, painting, nutrition & health education, Career Day, swimming, child cooking classes, and 1:1 tutoring/mentoring services. Our camp also provides campers with breakfast and lunches. Explore St. Louis runs for eight weeks from June to July. We've partnered with the St Louis Youth Jobs, Maryville University, St. Louis Science Center, Operation Food Search, and other community parents to provide a variety of activities for our campers to experience.
