The Superkids Life-Skills Development curriculum is proven to build...

Higher Self-Esteem

Kids get stronger by developing their social skills and a growth mindset.

Stronger Relationships

Kids build deeper social connections with peers, mentors, and community.

Increased Motivation

Kids develop plans for their futures and learn tools to stay in school.


A team of two Super-Teachers is connected with a school or community center where they work the whole school year.

We have an ever-evolving curriculum that uses theater, art, field trips, stories, games, videos, and sports to teach:  Life skills, Leadership and Literacy.

Keys to our success

  • Give kids a voice
    • Superkids has a Children's Board who makes sure the adults never lose sight of the true priority. The kids are given leadership roles and they live up to them.
  • Learn by doing
    • Everything is hands-on, active, and fun.
  • Not Yet policy
    • There is a cultural tendency in Paraguay to voice the negative, so Superkids has a Not Yet policy, which reflects our Growth Mindset. After anything that could be disempowering, we add YET. For example: I don't know how to read ... yet. He doesn't listen well. We haven't been able to reach him ... yet. But we are always determined to find a way.
  • Never work alone
    • We create sustainable development by working closely with both US and Paraguayan organizations.
      • PY: 20+ Paraguayan partner organizations including the local teacher’s college,  a Paraguayan Advisory Board of local community leaders, and a Paraguayan Children’s Board who can give us the real story.
      • US: the University of Washington and D-Prize, a Board of professionals who have all lived and worked in Paraguay.
