Children in homeless families still need to go to school. At a local family homeless shelter your help with the "Evening Study Hall Program" would be appreciated.
These kids have no control over the fact their family is homeless. But they can control how well they do in school with your help. From 7pm to 8:30 Monday through Thursday during the school year a volunteer opportunity exists.
You assist the kids in doing their studies, answer questions, help them with study tips and just be there to encourage them in keeping up with their school work.
A staff member and/or parent is always in the immediate vicinity.
Retired grade, middle and high school teachers wanted. Retired college teachers,professors or department heads needed.
These children are homeless but with your help they won't be hopeless.
