About Us
C.L.I.M.B. launched in 2023 with a purpose to provide a FREE, after-school enrichment program to children and youth living with limited resources in McKinney, TX.

At C.L.I.M.B. students will:

C - Connect

L - Learn

I - Imagine

M - Make

B - Become


C.L.I.M.B. provides enrichment activities hosted on-site at Merritt McGowan Manor Apartments in McKinney. 

In the After-School Program, students will be able to strengthen social skills, explore new interests, and develop a sense of community in a safe, nurturing environment, through fun and interactive activities.


In addition to enrichment activities for children, we also seek to be a resource for the whole family.

Our Special Events are hosted several times during the year to encourage strong and connected families where children can grow and thrive!

We are recruiting volunteers in a variety of roles. Some volunteers work directly with students and build relationships, while others serve behind the scenes on a more flexible schedule. There are roles that require No-Preparation, such as Table Leaders, or Table Buddy.


We also seek to build partnerships with businesses, colleges, and organizations that can introduce new ideas, spark interests, and give students the opportunity to discover their unique talents.
