Partners Empowering All Kids or PEAK began as a 21st Century Learning Centers program funded by the U.S. Department of Education in 2001. Although grant funding ceased May 31, 2005, the PEAK doors remain open through community support, especially through the Saginaw Chippewa Indian Tribe of Michigan and a nominal tuition.
PEAK keeps schools open until 6 p.m. on school days, and turns schools into community centers for kids for six weeks in the summer. Mt. Pleasant's PEAK program is administered by the City of Mt. Pleasant Parks & Recreation Department in partnership with the Mount Pleasant Public Schools. This program is designed to provide all school-age children with educational, enrichment, and recreational activities in a fun and safe environment.
