Fort Worth Forward

This annual week-long community engagement program connects students in grades 2-4 from all over Fort Worth, who wish to engage in meaningful, age-appropriate projects of value to the broader Fort Worth community. Students have a voice in the nature of the projects and learn more about themselves as citizens…all while developing a heart of service for our city!

Each year, we offer scholarships for those with demonstrated financial need. Our mission is threefold:

  1. we meet basic needs through healthy meals and free-play times,
  2. we ensure camper safety by establishing protocols and maintaining constant supervision, and
  3. we learn more about ourselves as citizens while developing a heart of service for our city!

One week each summer, we invite rising 2nd-4th graders from local schools (including TVS) to our campus.  Since we launched in 2018, we have worked with great partners like Rivertree Academy and have had several repeat campers!

Since this program rests under the umbrella of XPLORE: Summer at TVS, we have an awesome crew of XPLORE counselors and TVS faculty who volunteer to direct completion of the annual community projects.  We thank them for giving of their time and talents to help campers help their City!

In 2023, we convened on June 5-9!  This year, we created a guidebook to the City of Fort Worth (designed for new residents to the community) and created crafts to sell at an on-campus marketplace.

The guidebook and all proceeds from the marketplace were donated to World Relief North Texas!  The campers -- who came from four local elementary schools including TVS -- did an AMAZING job of learning and working together throughout the week.
