Provide Reliable Childcare
PROVIDE PEACE OF MIND FOR A PARENT
Providing safe and reliable childcare makes the difference in neighbors being able to attend programs that can change their life! Free childcare overcomes a significant barrier to attending a program. By volunteering your time, you are giving peace of mind to parents looking to become community leaders. Volunteer commitment is to commit at least twice a month.
Weekly Mondays 6:30-8:00pm
BBC Reading Assistant
The goal of the afterschool program is to provide K-5th grade children with appropriate, nurturing, and consistent adult attention in a structured and engaging environment. Volunteers are needed on Thursdays from 4:00-5:30pm to help improve a child's reading level. Some of that time will be helping the children complete their homework in small groups, some of the time will be working either one-on-one or in small groups (2-4 children) on literacy activities. This could be a game, writing a poem or story, reading, or some other activity. This is a weekly commitment.
Alternative Ways To Get Involved
Snacks are provided to both the children and teens during program time. Snacks can be delivered in person or sent to the office via Amazon.
WHEN FOOD IS MORE THAN JUST A MEAL
Sharing a meal help develops relationships deeper than just within the set program curriculum. It allows a time of fellowship and relationship building between neighbors and staff as well as removes the obstacle of having to find time to cook a meal before participating in a program.
Donate your services as an electrician, plumber, exterminator, painter, handyman, or carpet installer for one of the facilities or Gateway homes.
