Join us in supporting our transformative fundraising campaign, “When Schools are Closed, The EDGE is Open!” At The Edge, we believe that every child deserves access to opportunities that nurture their creativity, passion, and potential, regardless of the challenges they may face.

From 8 am to 8 pm, The Edge opens its doors to provide a dynamic platform that serves as a hub for inspiration, education, and mentorship when traditional educational settings are unavailable.

Check out our Vero Beach, Florida Campus.

We’re Celebrating 15 Years of Exceptional Service and Unveiling Our New Home in Indian River County.
