Evening Program Van Drivers
Rock House Kids
We are in need of van drivers to drive our 15 passenger vans to pick up children for our evening program Monday-Thursday. We will take one day a week or four - whatever you are able to give.
We work with children ages 6-18 Monday through Thursday from 5-8 pm. Mondays and Wednesdays we serve First through Sixth graders; Tuesdays and Thursdays we serve Seventh through Twelfth graders.
The volunteer position:
At least one evening per week.
Valid Drivers License
An overview of our program:
Each night, our vans head out around 4:45 to pick up. Our doors open at 5:00. The child play on the playground (weather permitting), watch movies, draw, etc., until dinner is served around 5:45. Every night they're with us, we serve the kids a hot meal. After dinner, the kids head to chapel for worship and a light lesson. Afterwards, they head to age appropriate classrooms for expounding on the chapel lesson. We provide the curriculum and related supplies for each night. At the end of the night, each child leaves with a kid-friendly food bag. The vans head out at 8:00 to drop children back off.
Rock House Kids is an ongoing year round program. We ask for at least a year long commitment.
Choose the day(s) of the week that best works for you! We have a great time with these precious, hungry and hurting children. We need volunteers that will faithfully support the evening programs by following the curriculum that is set forth for each day programming is available.
An application can be mailed, filled out at our office, or online at https://rockhousekids.org/contribute/volunteer/. We do a background check. If you have any questions please call our office.
