HeavenTrain is a brightly colored bus crafted to bring the message of Christ, love, and community to children and families in the urban Central Cleveland neighborhood. It runs every 2nd and 4th Saturday from April-December, and has been serving the community for over 35 years!
Energy is in the air as kids run full force to jump onto the bus, with music and activities all around! We meet as a group, and go to 5 different sites to reach out to children and their parents with a short Bible message, games, and a healthy snack.
We need volunteers who can come on Saturdays to make sure everything runs smoothly at each site! A typical day on HeavenTrain might include volunteers helping to monitor children on the bus, doing activities with them, passing out lunches, and going over memory verses with them.
This could be a great opportunity for youth groups, organizations, families, or individuals! Perhaps you, your group, or your organization have a creative activity you'd like to share with the children? All are welcome!
HOW TO APPLY
The safety of the children we serve is very important to us! Our process is designed to ensure volunteers are well-prepared to serve the children in the community.
This opportunity allows for some flexibility. Saturday volunteers may serve in different categories:
1st Time Volunteers (Newcomer)--can serve up to 3 visits before being asked to complete the application process. This level is best for group and individuals who may want to "get their feet wet" with HeavenTrain or are looking for a one-day/short-term opportunity. Newcomers will be assigned to a Core Volunteer during their visit.
Core Volunteers--serve on an ongoing basis throughout the year, and go through the application/screening process, which requires the following:
Application and Skill Sheet
Background Check (or a recent copy from the last 2 years)
1-hour "Ministry Safe" sexual abuse online training
