Serve Indiana > Academic Success Academic Success



Indiana Kids is a program started by former Governor Mitch Daniels in partnership with the Indiana Alliance of Boys & Girls Clubs.  The program provides support, resources, guidance, and tutoring services to help students succeed in school and participate in career exploration.

During the first year of the partnership, participants in the program increased their scores by one grade level in both math and reading.  Since 2005, over 16,000 students have participated in at least a portion of the program, either academic or career exploration.  Boys & Girls Clubs administer a pre-test and a post-test in reading and math to gauge the progress of each child enrolled.

The children are provided after school tutoring, homework help and career-related study.  The focus of the program is to reach TANF eligible children, grades 1-8.
