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.
