About

Video overview of who we are: www.youtube.com/watch?v=9ydQ8EcqzEQ

We are a Christian based, results-driven, after-school program that helps at-risk youth have abundant life. We are looking for people who love the Lord and love helping kids, to join us in the after-school hours to make a difference for kids.

Students failing in school are recommended to us by principals in the four under-resourced neighborhoods where we have after-school programming. We need volunteers to help us walk alongside the student as we work to enrich their lives-- mind, body, and soul. Come be a part of the solution!

How can you help?

1. Help kids with their homework. Encouraging them and giving them the individual attention they need.

2. Bible study or chapel - teaching them about God and His Word.

3. Be a mentor and encouragement! Building relationships is key!

Programming Days:
Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, & Thursday
Volunteers choose one day a week (or more) .

Sample Programming Schedule:
3:30-4:00- Students arrive (We provide transportation from school to program
4:00-5:00 - Dinner/Chapel/Bible study
5:00-6:30 - Homework help/tutoring (most help needed here)

One day a week, one hour a day can truly make a difference! We are flexible with what time you come and need to leave!
