Who We Are

My Kid’s Club opened on January 1, 2019, but since its inception in its original form in 2006, approximately 1,600 children have come through our Selma and Smithfield Clubs. MKC has evolved a vital resource for struggling families in Johnston County. My Kid’s Club will provide a foundation for the youth of the surrounding community to grow and prosper for years to come.

The mission of My Kid’s Club is to encourage and empower youth to grow in character and understanding through studies and opportunities for academic success, civic engagement, and habits that underscore healthy living to achieve their potential as responsible and caring citizens. We believe children underachieve not because they lack potential but because they cannot access the same opportunities, experiences, and support as adequately-resourced children. In short, we are not born smart; we ‘grow’ smart.

MKC seeks to address these challenges through quality programming after school and during the summer for math, reading, STEAM (science, math, engineering, arts and technology), college and career readiness, family support, civic engagement, and health and wellness. In the summer we include field trips and scholarship overnight camps for our middle school and high school students.

My Kid’s Club (MKC) delivers daily programming to more than 200 students ages 6-16 designed to help them learn the skills and attitudes they need to grow academically, succeed in their chosen career, and give back to the community. Our clubs are now located on the campuses of Selma Elementary and South Smithfield Elementary.
