Charleston Moms CARE: Non-Profit Spotlight on SEALKIDS

0

Giving back to our community is so important and we are so excited to present Charleston Moms CARE, a series where we’ll be highlighting different non-profits around the Lowcountry. We’ll tell you more about the organization and how you can get involved by volunteering!

This month we are featuring SEALKIDS, which is the only non-profit organization devoted solely to the educational support and success of children in the Navy SEAL community.

SEALKIDS’ vision is to help support the children of US Navy SEALs by providing impactful opportunities for every child. They help create a world in which the child can achieve their dreams and one in which SEALs never have to choose between the needs of their children and the needs of their county.

Their goals are:

1. To foster success and the well-being of the child through education.

2. To advocate for the child.

3. To help reduce the family stressors.

4. To provide resources for projects consistent with their purpose.

SEALKIDS has the following 4 core programs:

  1. Personalized academic support: From general tutoring to intensive specialized math programs to help Navy SEAL kids improve their performance in school.
  2. Specialized needs programs: Programs designed for children with learning disabilities, dyslexia, ADHD, ect.
  3. Testing & evaluation: Testing to identify the root cause of a child’s learning challenge.
  4. Advocacy: Their advocates help Navy SEAL families prepare for individualized education plans (IEPs) and 504 meetings.
