About Cool Kids Learn


 

Cool Kids Learn (CKL) has provided after school programming, summer academies, and individualized tutoring for more than 15,000 K-12 students since its founding in 2002. Based in Miami-Dade, Florida, CKL serves students in seven states, chiefly in Florida and Texas. Beyond helping children build academic skills, Cool Kids Learn instills a love of learning. Central to the thinking of its founders is the notion that society as a whole benefits when we recognize and cultivate the potential of all disadvantaged children.

Partnering with parents, business leaders, school districts, and communities, Cool Kids Learn raises students' aspirations by connecting learning to real-world problems. Through experiential, problem-based curricula, CKL programs help students develop core competencies alongside higher order thinking, decision making, and people skills.

CKL offers four academic programs. “CKL Academy” connects elementary school students with community leaders and locally relevant issues while building math, language arts, and critical thinking. The “Steps to Success” program provides one-on-one remedial tutoring for grades K-12. “Decision CKL” teaches decision-making skills to middle school students; skills they can apply when faced both with academic and personal challenges. Finally, “Achievers” is an advanced summer and weekend program for rising middle school students. It provides the kind of support network such students need to reach their highest potential. This last program points to a key component of CKL's mission. Most federal, state, and local programs aim only to ensure that disadvantaged children reach a baseline of achievement on standardized tests. CKL also supports academically talented children as well, providing challenging coursework and the support that parents alone sometimes cannot provide.

Cool Kids Learn boasts an impressive leadership team and a broad base of sponsorship. Two of the organization's founders, Andrea Kilpatrick and Cutari Copeland, remain at the helm. As president, Ms. Kilpatrick brings a strong background in non-profit leadership to the table. Ms. Copeland, the program director, holds a Master’s in Educational Administration, and has consulted with a number of schools on educational issues. The team has successfully won underwriting from several national and local foundations ranging from the United Way to the regional supermarket chain, Publix.
