Our Impact By the Numbers


Every little bit counts. The numbers tell the story – we have enabled kids and their families to positively impact 36 different schools and 21 zip codes in Maryland. Thank you Clever Kids participants, let’s keep growing and making a difference for social good.


Creativity & Confidence!


Clever Kids enables students to imagine, explore and exercise creative thinking! From Introduction to Improv, Fire Art Pottery, Innovators & Electromagnetics, Anti-bullying and the Spaghetti and Marshmallow Tower Challenge, our events inspired kids to explore different creative opportunities and provided them skills to succeed! Clever Kids feel positive, satisfaction and accomplishment, resulting in increased confidence and pride.


Communication & Collaboration!

Clever Kids’ programs allow students to connect and create with other kids they otherwise might not meet, providing students with teamwork, social competence and empathy skills (compassion). Kids volunteering makes a difference. This past year, we’ve held many volunteer events, such as:

  • Animal Shelter Recycled Pet Toys Volunteer Project
  • Art with a Heart Community Service Art Project
  • Good Deeds Day Volunteer Event with JVC Baltimore
  • Volunteering at Assisted Living Community Centers

Kids benefits from being part of different tasks; a chance to provide“service for others” and brighten their  day. We are making a difference!
