Homework Club

Feeding bodies, feeding minds, feeding hearts.

 

We ask volunteers to commit to the same day each week to help promote stability in the lives of our children. Might this be your calling?

We strive to provide individual assistance on homework, while also leaving time for play and socializing.

Play is an important part of learning. Playing, learning, and eating together, we form a community of mutual support and benefit.

Statistics consistently show that children who get enough to eat; have a safe, stable environment in which to play and learn; and are provided one-on-one attention, have a better chance at negotiating a difficult world in which many things are outside of their control. All of the children we serve come from disadvantaged homes. Our work provides kids another point of contact in addition to home and school; our aim is to ensure that each child hears that they matter at least once-a-day.

As with all ministries at WUCC, this one seeks to meet people where they are and to love them with no other agenda. There is no proselytizing to children or an obligation for families to attend church services.

Homework Club is a powerful volunteer opportunity One any given day, you can find retired teachers, local college and university students, nurses, and pastors providing tutoring help. We are always looking for new volunteers for the program, which runs from September through May. And you don’t have to do math if you don’t want to!

Children develop friendships that promote happiness, self-esteem, and positive determination.

Let the little children come to me; do not stop them; for it is to such as these that the kingdom of God belongs. Truly I tell you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of God as a little child will never enter it.
— Jesus, Gospel of Mark 10:14b-15
