Thursdays, Sept. 21 - May 17, 5:00-7:00 pm
Through our partnership with Freedom for Youth Ministries, Whiz Kidz is a fun, interactive, holistic, and Christ-centered mentoring program for children in kindergarten – grade 5 from our local neighborhood who are in need of extra love and support because of family or financial circumstances. Volunteers work with children for two hours once a week by providing transportation, meals, play time, Bible time, and/or small groups, and tutoring.
Volunteer opportunities include:
*Small Group Leaders: Work directly with the kids through games, crafts, music, and tutoring. (Commitment is every week)
Meal preparation and service: Prepare a meal for the kids, deliver, and serve. (Commitment is one time or more)
- *Bus Drivers: CDL license required. Help pick up the kids from the Oakridge neighborhood. (Commitment 1-2 times per month)
- *Bus Hosts: Ride on the bus to help greet and pick up children from their neighborhood. (Commitment is 1-2 times per month)
- *Reading Buddies: Read with the kids for 15-30 minutes during the program (Commitment is 1-2 times per month).
*Application and background check required (see below)
Here’s how to get connected!
- Volunteers serving in the small group leader, bus driver, bus host, or reading buddy roles are asked to complete the following application and background check found HERE.
- To prepare for the upcoming year, all volunteers are asked to attend a poverty and cultural training on Thursday, Sept. 14 from 5:00-7:00 pm with programming beginning officially on Sept. 21.
