About

Looking for a fun, fulfilling, and nurturing place to serve? The families, kids, volunteers, and staff that are a part of The GreenHouse create a learning environment full of life and warmth. Join us!

At The GreenHouse, you will gain first-hand experience working in a low-income community, addressing the needs and challenges of its youth. Volunteers at The GreenHouse impact students through building relationships, facilitating small group activities, and providing homework help.

Evergreen, the after-school tutoring and enrichment program, provides 1 st through 6th graders with a safe, creative, and cultivating environment to do homework, improve academic skills, and participate in recreational activities. Study Buddies are asked to commit 2.5 hours per week for at least 6 months. Evergreen runs on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays from 3:00 -5:30.

Less than half of the students enrolled in our after-school programs are at or above grade level in the areas of Language Arts and Math. We need YOU to be a positive role model and to give them the encouragement they need to reach their full potential. Invest your time in our youth and find the joy that comes from making a difference, one life at a time!

The GreenHouse is a community enrichment center that offers tutoring, mentoring, leadership development, spiritual development, recreation, and enrichment activities for under-resourced youth in the Gardenland-Northgate neighborhood of Sacramento. Our mission is to cultivate a thriving community by nurturing the emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and physical development of our youth and inspiring them to grow to their full potential.
