Fort Worth Forward
This full-day community engagement program connects students in grades 2-4 from all over Fort Worth, who wish to engage in a meaningful, age-appropriate project of value to the broader Fort Worth community. Students will have a voice in the nature of the project, and will undoubtedly learn more about themselves as citizens…while developing a heart of service for our city.
We offer scholarships for those with demonstrated financial need. Our mission is threefold:
- we meet basic needs through healthy meals and free-play times
- we ensure safety by establishing protocols and maintaining supervision, and
- 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 a local school 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.
