Outliers is the leading support NPO for community-based
after-school programs.

Invest in the education of children by supporting after-school programs.

Every year we partner with a core group of after-school programs. This year we are helping 50 programs provide academic support to 5,000 students every week after school.

“You give us strength and power to continue even though it’s not an easy journey to be on.”

Why partner with Outliers

Experience. We have a deep working knowledge of after-school programs based on 13 years of experience. This includes running an after-school program for 8 years and building a collective of like-minded practitioners. Since 2014, we have facilitated investment of more than R13 million to impact thousands of children through after-school programming each year. With your support, we will continue to train and resource community-based after-school programs.

Trust. At the heart of how we work is listening with intent and acknowledging the complexities of the context in which people live. This, together with our ability to meet needs as they arise, builds trust and has made us the go-to service provider to support community-based, academic after-school programs.

Alignment. When engaging with collaborators, we spend time helping you figure out what you are passionate about to guide your investment, whether financial or in-kind. In 2021, we amplified financial contributions 5-fold for investment into after-school programs. Meet our collaborating partners who invest with us to help make this possible.

It was so good to feel involved in a worthwhile project! Well done to Outliers! Thank you so much for involving us in the community – even in these times of isolation.

Outliers is doing the actual work of supporting learners where they are, which is not a simple task. It’s courageous and we, as a society, desperately need it.
