The SKC is Shania’s non-profit organization dedicated to improving the lives of at-risk children in communities across the world. The program, founded as a response to the difficulties Shania endured as a youth, is designed to implement simple, yet effective, initiatives to increase the potential of students in the program to live successful, fulfilling lives.

Shania chose Las Vegas as the next program in the SKC because of her new-found appreciation of Las Vegas stemming from her recently launched resident show SHANIA: STILL THE ONE at The Colosseum at Caesars Palace. “As I began my residency here in Las Vegas, I knew that this is where I should introduce a new program to give back to this wonderful community that has welcomed me with open arms and made me feel so at home,” said Shania. “The children at Tom Williams Elementary are special indeed and watching the development and growth of these children into motivated, high-achieving members of our community will be one of my greatest achievements.”

The Las Vegas SKC Clubhouse at Tom Williams Elementary School in North Las Vegas is a partnership between the SKC and The Public Education Foundation of Nevada. “We are proud to partner with Shania Kids Can,” said Judi Steele, president of The Public Education Foundation. “The clubhouse offers a safe, supportive and very special place so our children can succeed.”

The Las Vegas SKC Clubhouse at Tom Williams Elementary School is a brightly decorated room which is supplied with rich academic, nutritional, therapeutic, and extra-curricular activities for students in the program. Much like when Shania was a young child, the children in the program are selected because they fall into the gray area between a dysfunctional home life and qualifying for a social service intervention.

Shania finished by saying, “Looking back at my childhood, I realize that my disadvantages, whether they were due to not having a supportive environment or due to a lack of financial resources, created a lack of self-confidence and insecurity in me, causing me to withdraw and be less social than my classmates. I promised myself early on in my childhood that I would help kids just like myself cope with their disadvantages and prosper in spite of those challenges. The Shania Kids Can Foundation is fulfilling that promise.”

The Shania Kids Can Foundation educates, inspires, and empowers children in communities to achieve their full potential while increasing their chances of equality and opportunities for success. Through this vision, the Shania Kids Can Foundation provides children who are at risk of losing their opportunity to be the best they can be because they are suffering from poverty, disregard, abuse, or an overall dysfunctional family lifestyle with the chance to overcome the effects that these challenges may be having on their ability to function at an optimum level during the school day. www.shaniakidscan.com
