For you were called to freedom, brothers. Only do not use your freedom as an opportunity for the flesh, but through love serve one another. For the whole law is fulfilled in one word: “You shall love your neighbor as yourself.” – Galatians 5:13-14
Volunteer weekly or monthly in our after school program. During this time, youth ages 8-18 participate in enrichment activities that engage them with the gospel in a structured, safe environment with caring adult role models. We offer literacy support alongside other age-appropriate academic enrichment, group recreation and sports, life skills training, and bible study. This opportunity is available Tuesday to Friday from 3:00 pm – 5:30 pm during the school year.
Volunteer weekly as an assistant coach, alongside a MAM coach, through one of our three sports seasons (8-10 weeks). Our four key sports are flag football, basketball, volleyball, and soccer. We have scheduled weekly practices Tuesday to Friday in the evening after 5:30 pm, and games are played throughout the day on Saturday. Prior knowledge of the sport is desired, but not required.
Volunteer twice per month as a mentor through our mentoring program. High school youth apply for this program which combines mentoring, life skills, and work experience to develop prepared young adults for life after graduation. We ask our mentors to volunteer for an entire school year and meet with youth for a minimum of two hours per month.
Volunteer together as a group – university clubs and organizations, churches, or corporations. Volunteers can organize a service project at one of our four neighborhood sites, lead group games and recreation, host a cookout or party, co-lead devotionals and bible studies, or build intentional relationships with our youth after school. Group volunteers can also share their personal or professional expertise with the youth such as finance lessons, computer skills, healthy eating choices, hobbies and interests, etc.
