PROVIDE IN-PERSON CLASSROOM SUPPORT in KidSmart, Bayshore Christian Ministries’ academic program from Monday-Thursday, 3:00-6:30, for students in grades 1-5 from East Palo Alto and Belle Haven neighborhood of Menlo Park. Timing and frequency of volunteering are flexible; you and BCM can make it work to fit your schedule.
KidSmart is an after-school tutoring program that supports academic and social development of children in our community. The program immerses kids in a caring and safe environment, in which they can reach their full potential.
When children are behind in school, they quickly learn the mindset of "I can’t." "I can’t do math." "I can’t read." For these children to grow into leaders in their families and communities, they need to believe they can. "I can do math." "I can make a difference." Through KidSmart, BCM works to show youth they can, by providing a supportive environment and highly-relational tutoring.
BCM's fall 2020 programs include new COVID-19 safety guidelines. This opportunity directly addresses impacts of COVID-19 by academically supporting East-of-Bayshore students. Especially in this time of the pandemic, this support is needed and beneficial.
The mission of Bayshore Christian Ministries is to equip east-of-Bayshore youth to grow spiritually, gain life skills and develop as leaders so that they have hope and a future.
Bayshore Christian Ministries (BCM) serves youth in the East of Bayshore community, meeting practical and spiritual needs through leadership training, spiritual development and life skills application. BCM programs continue to grow and effectively serve over 200 youth participants each year in small group settings with individualized attention. Our programs are open to any East of Bayshore youth regardless of disability, race, religion or ethnic origin.
