Volunteers can organize a clean-up at one of our eight neighborhood sites, co-teach devotionals, host a cookout, or build intentional relationships with the youth after school. Volunteers can also share a special skill or talent with the youth such as personal finance lessons, computer maintenance, lawn care, healthy eating choices, etc.
A small group or business can adopt one of 60+ teams in our leagues. Your group would be responsible for cheering and encouraging the team as they play in our leagues. Our hope is that you would enjoy games while building life-long relationships with our students.
