We support kids and their families in the 38126 zip code by offering after-school and summer programs that inspire spiritual, physical, and educational growth.  Through year-round engagement, we help kids build stronger social and emotional skills and prepare them for success inside and outside of the classroom.

Emmanuel Center Summer Camp is a six week summer day camp for kids in grades K-8. Campers spend a summer off the street, having fun and learning. This program helps youth maintain academic continuity through the summer break and expands learning by engaging students in creative activities.

Emmanuel Academy: We provide enriching after-school educational and recreational activities, including tutoring, mentoring, homework assistance and more. These programs help kids reach their full potential academically and spiritually, giving them a safe space to gather once school is done for the day.
