Mission Statement

FUMC/MLK TUTORING CENTER Our goal is to help MLK K-2nd students, via their tutor time, learn to love reading and learning! The First United Methodist Church and Martin Luther King Jr. Leadership Academy are in our 33rd year of partnership!


The FUMC Tutoring Center is located in Martin Luther King Leadership Academy. MLK is a Grand Rapids Public School. MLK serves neighborhood students; nearly 100% of these children live at or below the poverty level. This is FUMC and MLK's 33rd year of partnership! Our literacy tutoring program provides reading tutors for all Kindergarten, 1st, and 2nd-grade students. Volunteers join our program from local churches, schools, and businesses and hear about us from family and friends. Our program provides training to orient volunteers to school policies, reading strategies, and tutoring center supplies. No experience is required to become part of our program, but all volunteers must pass a background check. Tutoring takes place during the school day.
