Teaming up with Hillside Elementary in the West Shore School District, each fall, we “adopt” about twenty 2nd-5th grade students and invite them into our church Tuesday evenings for tutoring, a hot meal, and one-on-one time with their Big Buddy.
Many of our members have a background in education and work with children, but most of our Big Buddies just love children and that’s really all that’s required to help.
Study Buddies has existed since the early 2000’s and it takes Big Buddy volunteers to keep it going strong. The more volunteers we have, the more students we can invite. We’re always looking for new faces.
Contact Darlene Brandt for more information or to inquire about getting involved.
