Empowering youth and engaging community

WeighOut Ministries empowers youth and engages the community to build relationships between families, schools, businesses, churches, government, and community stakeholders.

Lunch Bunch

All-stars are provided with a safe space during lunch break to talk through social and emotional challenges each student is facing, have fun, and build relationships with adult mentors.

Homework Clubs

All-Starts will have after school access to laptops and tutoring to complete missing assignments and gain a greater understanding of what they are learning in School. 

Athletics

WeighOut Ministries has partnered with Peak City Athletics to provide an all-star youth basketball academy. The academy focuses on developing strong characteristics in the lives of young athletes. 

Health and Wellness

All-stars will learn to overcome adversity and build resilience to increase hope in our after school Mind Matters class. We help students understand the effects of adversity and toxic stress, and teach them skills to soothe and calm their mental and physical stress responses.

Life Skills

All-stars learn to build self-awareness, develop agency, cultivate a growth mindset, develop resilience or grit and raise  expectations for themselves. Our after school life skills development course will help them achieve success in these areas during their early years.

Civic Engagement

All-stars will discuss solutions for the social issues they identify in the community and on their school campus. They will be implementing these ideas and strategies through community engagement projects.

Make our youth a priority

Our Youth

In 2001, new federal legislation led all US states to develop zero-tolerance policies for schools. Schools implemented strict practices, such as detentions, suspensions and exclusions, in an attempt to control student behavior. They even introduced police to monitor infringements on school grounds….

How We Make A Difference

WeighOut Ministries is helping students improve their performance academically and develop character strength that would produce all-star community citizens. Our Community All-Star incentivized program structure will motivate, inspire, and challenge every student to perform at an all-star level, and reach their full potential in every aspect of life.

How You Can Make a Difference Too

WeighOut Ministries is non-profit, and where we have the biggest impact is through the help we receive from our volunteers and partnerships. We invite you to join us in the community-driven initiative to participate and strengthen Colorado Springs together.

Kim Noyes, Principal – Centennial Elementary School

"My family and I were not in a good place. I am a single mom who had a tough time getting ready for the year to start. My washer broke and I had to spend the money for new school shoes on the washer. Because of the support of WeighOut Ministries, I was able to pay for the washer knowing they had the shoes taken care of. I am grateful. Now, my kids are loving school at Centennial, and I am thrilled we have what we need.”
