Mission Statement The mission of Pan-African Community Development Aid is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.
Background Statement
Pan-African Community Development Aid began in 2008, when African community leaders in KCMO came together and came up with the idea of bringing community and volunteers in order to help children’s homework and community’s resources where they are accessible, coordinated and accountable and in 2009, Pan-African Community Development Aid was established. “It’s relationships, not programs, that change children,” once community leader said. “A great program simply creates the environment for healthy relationships to form between the community volunteers and children. Young people thrive when adults care about them on a one-to-one level of tutoring, and when they also have a sense of belonging to a caring community.” That’s exactly what Pan-African Community Development Aid does. Today we are an effective volunteer based organization dedicated to keeping kids in school and helping them succeed in life. Our unique model positions assess students’ needs and provide resources to help them succeed in the school. We are willing and ready to partner with any local businesses, social service agencies, health care providers and volunteers. Whether its food, school supplies and tutoring or academic assistance Pan-African Community Development Aid is there to help.
Parents and community leaders have conducted evaluations of the PACDA model within the past three years. These evaluations confirmed that PACDA is not only one of the most effective service models helping students overcome barriers to school success, it is also a free of charges.

CEO/Executive Director/Board Chair Statement

In FY16, we served more than 650 students in Jackson County. We continue to strive to realize our vision to “grow an organization that delivers as much as possible for every student.”
Along with our after school’s program, we will in the future provide literacy education to students in throughout our area of service. We will also exploring other service delivery models, training and technical assistance in both integrated student supports and community school’s efforts.
Sustaining this growth is not without its challenges. It is the goal of the donor to supply the supports necessary to provide our proven programs to the most vulnerable students in Jackson county. Many communities have the need for our services. Community leaders recognized the importance and quality of our work. We hope to build new partnerships and increase support of our mission to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

In order to measure and determine our effectiveness, Pan-African Community Development Aid closely monitors how our program is impacting children in kcmo public schools. Under short-term successes were of "case managed" students, meaning these students were identified for case management because their school grade are falling and tendencies consistent with students who decide to drop out of school.
When the school year concludes, PACDA will conduct a comprehensive evaluation at each school-based program that will capture the success of our program at helping students improve their academic and performance in school.

  • 93% of students self-reported that they are more likely to increase their reading and writing skills.
The Pre-and Post-event student evaluation is a new measure to gauge students’ knowledge going into our program as well as a measure of how much their initial knowledge has changed after attending our program.
