Every day at 4:00 p.m. Club members enjoy a healthy snack. Meals include foods from at least two major food groups and are served by trained snack helpers. As a volunteer, you can help facilitate and manage the snack program. Help serve food, monitor the cafeteria or use your cooking skills to help prepare meals for events!
Our mentoring program focuses on providing club members with emotional support while dealing with family struggles, behavioral issues etc. Mentors talk with their club members about career exploration, post-secondary education, drug and alcohol abuse prevention and self-esteem issues. The mentoring program can be done in an individual or group setting with a required meeting time of once a week.
Students get homework help through an intense two- to three-hour after school program. Members read by themselves, to other children, listen to a mentor read, or read to a mentor for 20 minutes. Volunteer to assist club members with homework, reading, or just be there to answer their questions!
Help youth achieve and maintain fitness, acquire a broad range of skills, and develop a sense of teamwork, cooperation, and fairness that leads to the development of healthy lifestyle patterns.
