<p>The Power Company empowers at-risk, inner-city children to not only become productive, successful, contributing members of society, but to become the leaders of the next generation. We are a faith-based, Michigan non-profit that seeks to promote the emotional, physical, spiritual, and social well-being of children growing up in the most poverty-stricken cities in Michigan.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>The Power Company Kids Club was started in 1993 with an old school bus and 23 children in attendance. Today, the Power Company Kids Club has expanded to a fleet of`12 buses bringing hundreds of children to its multi-faceted programs, free of charge. Each week the Power Company Kids Club team leaders visit the children at their homes in order to build strong and enduring relationships. On Saturday, hundreds of school children (K-6th grade) are brought to the Power Company Kids Club where they enjoy an action-packed atmosphere filled with fun, games, and focused, directional teaching. The lessons focus on topics such as staying in school, saying no to drugs and alcohol, ending racism and violence, and promoting good citizenship. In addition to the Saturday program and home visits, the Power Company Kids Club offers the Summer Leadership Academy, Summer Sidewalk programs, a middle, high-school and college leadership training program, college scholarship funding, internship program, and Project Christmas Joy.</p>
