Kids’ University (KU) provides over 300 children, ages 4-12, residing in Dallas area homeless shelters with a rewarding and educational summer camp experience on the The University of Texas at Dallas campus. Two separate sessions, four days each, are designed to make learning fun while instilling in children the belief and goal that they can achieve a higher education. Participants attend different interactive classes during the week, including engineering, computer science, geology, math, nutrition, and more. They explore different career opportunities while being exposed to a collegiate campus environment. Additionally, each day participants meet with a mentor and peers to discuss the importance of topics like staying in school, making healthy decisions, and staying drug-free during Rainbow Days’ nationally recognized Curriculum-Based Support Group (CBSG®) Program. On the final day of camp, graduates attend a highly emphasized Graduation Ceremony sporting bright colored caps and gowns where they hear an inspirational commencement speaker, walk across the stage to receive their diploma, and shake hands with Dr. George Fair, UT Dallas’ Dean of Interdisciplinary Studies. rainbowdays.org/project/kids-university/
