Wonder Kits is proud to partner with the Dallas Public Library to bring Wonder Kits to their after school program and bring active learning to children in the community. 

Each month Dallas Afterschool drops off 42 boxes to the main branch and the librarians circulate throughout the Dallas library locations.


Each Wonder Kit is assembled by the Citizens Development Center, a nonprofit work training center and employment placement organization for adults with intellectual, mental health and/or physical disabilities. Each purchase of a Wonder Kit collectively impacts two North Texas nonprofits in support of furthering their missions.
