The 2018-2019 Oklahoma City school year has begun! Yes, that’s right. OKCPS starts tomorrow! Every school year we host an after school program at Rock Island. In year’s past during this time we fed the kids, played games, socialized, studied the Bible, and built relationship. Last year we decided to be more intentional with our younger students by pairing mentors with students, getting others to help tutor, and gathering a handful of other volunteers that want to help set up, clean up, and make food. We believe these efforts were successful! Students grew in their understanding of the Bible and who Jesus is, many improved academically, and each child was loved, welcomed, and invited into a safe place. And, don’t worry. We still had plenty of hang out/goof off time too.
We will continue this program and will officially begin AUGUST 27th!!! So, there is still plenty of time to sign up and help out. If you are interested in being involved, have any questions or need more information, please, don’t hesitate to ask! Here’s an overview of what we’re needing and how you can be involved:
Who – Any and everyone. We need single people, married couples, those with their own kids they want to bring to help and/or participate in the tutoring, men, woman, young, old. You get the idea.
What – Tutoring and relationship building. We will provide the material/curriculum. You just show up between 4:45-5:30 and we will pair you with a kid or two (hopefully the same kid/s every time). You and your students will work on school given homework, material we provide that discusses the Bible, character building traits, and some life skills.
When – Monday evenings 4:45-6:00. The actual tutoring will require around 30 minutes. You can show up at 5:00, knock out the tutoring and then hang out with your student until we close or you are welcome to show up at 5:30, help with tutoring and then be on your way.
