This opportunity is centered around academic support and career exploration for the K-5 students that we serve. Many need additional math and reading time (in addition to homework help) that requires individualized attention. You would be working alongside experienced educators and the kids would be excited to have the additional support. Great kids with great need!
This opportunity would be to support the clothing closet (particularly as we change seasons and hold special events) to ensure that we are preparing to meet the needs of those who visit on Thursdays and Saturdays (10-2p) every week. More importantly, when disaster strikes we work with Matthew 25 Ministries to coordinate donations to stand in the gap during crisis.
This opportunity is focused on food management with our partner, Freestore Food Bank, to bring additional food supplies back to our pantry in Lincoln Heights (Thursdays 10-2p). We also collect 10,000+ canned goods during the holiday season and distribute throughout 45215.
HOPE Summer Camp
This opportunity is centered around academic support and career exploration for the Pre K-4th students that we serve. Many need additional math and reading time (in addition to homework help) that requires individualized attention. You would be working alongside experienced educators (teachers and teacher assistants per grade level) and the kids would be excited to have the additional support. We also have specialized projects (Science Technology Engineering Arts Mathematics programming) that we could always utilize volunteers to help us manage.

When working in impoverished communities, the focus should be placed on humility and empathy. We do not wish to or be perceived as looking down on those less fortunate. Our purpose is to simply stand in the gap until they can stand on their own.
