Shania Kids Can
Founded in 2010 by performer and advocate, Shania Twain, Shania Kids Can (SKC) works within elementary schools to deliver services that promote positive change in children's lives in time of crises and economic hardship. SKC provides children with access to academic, social, and emotional support, and nutritious snacks and meals and hygiene items where needed. SKC provides the means to develop important life skills, partake in group activities, field trips and other opportunities all while in a safe, confidence-building environment—known as the Shania Kids Can Clubhouse—where children can learn, grow, and reach their full potential.
A little bit about two of our programs:
Las Vegas Clubhouse
Since 2013, SKC has operated at both elementary and middle school levels, based on the needs within the Las Vegas community. As of 2022, SKC is partnering with Communities in Schools Nevada where the Las Vegas Clubhouse supports Martin Luther King Jr Elementary School. The student population is rich in diversity. 60% of students identify Hispanic/Latino, 20% identify as Black/African American, 10% identify as White, and 5% identify as muti-racial. Over 25% of our students are English language learners and 15% of students are on an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) and receive Special Education services.
St. Vincent (Thunder Bay, ON)
In collaboration with Shkoday and the United Way of Thunder Bay, SKC proudly launched a new Biwaase'aa program at St. Vincent Catholic Elementary School in 2021. Shkoday's Biwaase’aa program has similar goals to SKC, increasing the life skills of Indigenous & non-Indigenous children, youth, and their families through strategies of academic improvement, emotional development, cultural awareness, and nutritional support.
Providing children with services and support that promote positive change in times of crises and economic hardship.
Success and prosperity through well-rounded support for children.
