Coalition for Kids offering daytime virtual learning support

Coalition For Kids is offering daytime virtual learning assistance for Johnson City Schools students in grades 7-9.

In addition to Coalition For Kids normal services providing after-school care to over 350 children each school day from 3-7 p.m., the nonprofit organization is now offering daytime programming during the 2020-21 school year to further support Johnson City Schools and children and families in grades 7-9.

Full-time in-person learning started for Johnson City Schools students in kindergarten through sixth grade on Aug. 31. However, students in seventh through ninth grade are on a 50 percent physical attendance schedule with children rotating days in-person and at home learning virtually.

Coalition For Kids has implemented plans to support these students during the day with virtual learning when they are not scheduled to be at school on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday. If not for Coalition for Kids, these students may otherwise be home alone.  

C4K will continue to assist children with virtual learning, communicate with their teachers, assist each individual with their homework assignments, tutoring, mentoring, and provide meals & snacks.  

Citi will be presenting a $10,000 reverse raffle on Oct. 1 to help raise funds so C4K can continue offering daytime programming.

The C4K $10,000 Reverse Raffle fundraiser, presented by Citi, will be held on Oct. 1. The raffle is raising funds to cover the cost of providing additional programming, which has been offered since the beginning of August – at no cost to the families and children.  

Raffle tickets are $100 each and can be purchased online at or by contacting Lisa Pawley, Director of Development, at 423.434.2031 ext. 835. For more information on C4K, visit 

If you would like additional information about programming availability, space is limited, please contact Sierra Dickson, Interim Director of Programming, at 423-434-2031 ext. 820.
