Super Kids Club Volunteering:

The children, grades K-5, attend Super Kids Clubs to learn in an environment of one on one tutoring and mentoring focused on their specific needs. Volunteers from across our community work with the children helping them to complete their homework and encouraging them to succeed.

Super Teens Club Volunteering:

Super Teens' staff and volunteers assist 6th-12th grade students, helping them to complete their homework and school projects. They spend time getting to know the students sharing in students’ concerns and accomplishments. Staff and volunteers are committed to the students' success by offering encouragement, guidance, and support to pursue their education and become successful and contributing citizens to our community. Student progress is monitored weekly through ParentLink on the school district's website. Personal accountability and responsibility are built as students and staff review their grades together.

We hope you will join our dedicated team of volunteers that are changing the lives of the youth in our communities!
