There are many ways to volunteer in the youth program. If you have a heart for students and want to serve, please talk to Frank Newburn or Stacy Ash at the church.
TUTORING/ Homework Help Room –
Adults are needed to help staff the Homework Help Room. The room is open on Wednesdays from 5:00-6:00p in the Jr High Youth Lounge. Students can bring their dinner in, and sit in a quiet room to do homework. They can also find help with assignments from willing adults. If you can sit in the room as an adult presence, or if you can help out with homework every Wednesday - or even just one Wednesday per month - please let Stacy Ash know. Also if you are a student and you know you need help in a specific subject - let Stacy know, because we have adults that are good at certain subject that we can call on. We even have someone that can help with high school
SMALL GROUP LEADERS & CO-LEADERS -
Adults are needed to help facilitate small groups on Wednesday nights from 7:00-8:00p. Small groups are divided by age and gender. Group leaders are needed, but adults can also serve as a secondary adult presence and request not to lead. Adults committing to Wednesdays also attend a monthly adult youth leader meeting. Curriculum, resources, training and adult study and support provided.
