Kids On Course pilot begins!

As classroom doors open next week, Harrison Elementary and Van Buren Elementary Schools will pilot the new Zach Johnson Foundation program called Kids on Course. PGA TOUR pro Zach Johnson held dual announcements at the schools in his hometown of Cedar Rapids. "Kids on Course started as a simple question- what can we do that will change the lives of young people in my hometown? What we came up with is what parents, teachers and non-profit leaders said would make a difference. Now the real work starts," Johnson said.

Kids on Course is a pilot program developed by the board of the Zach Johnson Foundation in cooperation with the United Way of East Central Iowa and the Cedar Rapids Community School District. "This program will help inspire the students of Harrison and Van Buren schools to make choices that will ensure the kind of broadened exposure that makes high school graduation a given, and that leads to fulfilling careers and productive citizenship," said Dr. Ruth White, Program Director of Kids on Course.


Help children reach their potential while having fun by volunteering to lead an after-school program for 2nd grade students. Volunteers can help teach arts and crafts, sciences, or other worthwhile and fun programs!
