Activities Beyond the Classroom is a nonprofit that creates and manages more than 200 athletic and cultural extracurricular programs and activities, ranging from foreign languages to team sports, for more than 15,000 Cincinnati Public Schools students every year.
In CPS, 80% of students are at or below the Federal Poverty Line. These kids are the most at-risk kids in our city. They need support, structure, advice, and instruction—not just in school, but after school as well. That is exactly what ABC provides—at NO COST—because we believe poverty shouldn’t be a barrier to success.
Extracurricular activities for students increase graduation rates by almost 20%, according to a study by the University of Alabama. Activities Beyond the Classroom offers the opportunity to support students to ensure their participation in extracurricular activities on an annual basis.
ABC raises money specifically so children can participate in extracurricular activities at no cost. Your donation directly supports the 15,000 students who participate in our programs.
