Youth

Camp

Our youth programs are free of charge to at-risk children. At-risk generally means that the child is affected by one or more of these risk factors: poverty, homelessness, disability, below average grades and households without English speakers. Most of our youth programs are in partnership with a local church.

LITTLE VILLAGE

Little Village is a great place for children from birth to age 5 to play and families to find community. It makes such a difference to know as a family that we are not alone; to find others whose kids enjoy the same thing and find that we are overcoming the same challenges together.

RISING SCHOLARS

Under-resourced Christian students with leadership potential are often overlooked. Many of these students don’t have the support they need to craft their future story. Rising Scholars helps under-resourced students succeed in their education, grow spiritually, accomplish goals, make career choices and develop healthy relationships.

WHIZ KIDS TUTORING

Tutoring has the power to boost children’s academic scores, create strong readers and improve confidence. But our volunteers become so much more than tutors. They become mentors, friends and positive role models that change the lives of children beyond the classroom.

Youth Mentoring

We give children caring, enduring, one-to-one relationships that change their lives. Are you interested in becoming a mentor? Just a few hours each week can make a big difference in the life of a child.
