About

Children and youth living in low-income housing often lack the support and resources they need to make healthy choices for a strong future. You can make all the difference by being a supportive adult who understands their challenges and knows they can overcome them.

Help facilitate structured activities afterschool for youth of all ages. Think homework help, snack prep, crafts, support groups, field trips and more. And if you have a great idea for a talent or skill to share, we'll work with you to create an activity! If you are able to commit to a weekly shift for at least three months, you will become a part of this community and these children’s success! There will be lots of fun had, but the most important thing is helping children of all ages feel valued, supported, and capable. Initial and on-going training provided.
