 K-12th Grade Programming

Elementary School Mentors | Elementary School mentors work with kindergarten through 5th grade students once or twice a week during meals, play time, Bible time, and/or small groups, and tutoring.

Tutors | Tutors assist middle or high school students for 1-2 hours per week with homework assignments and literacy, much like a tutor. Ministry staff will assist you with school information and materials to help each student.

Class Instructors and Assistants | Class instructors prepare and lead group classes for 3-10 middle school or high school students. Classes may encompass things like woodworking, cooking, art, singing, photography, and sports. Classes occur once a week for about 8-10 weeks, and you can lead (or assist) one session or continuous sessions throughout the school year.

Small Group Leaders | Small group leaders facilitate faith-directed conversations with 3-7 middle school or high school students once a week for 1-2 hours, covering topics provided by staff. Small group leaders help youth think about Jesus Christ, their faith, and learning to go to God with problems and celebrations in their lives.

Transportation | Transportation volunteers use one of Freedom for Youth's 15-passenger vans or their own personal vehicles to transport youth to and from Freedom programs.
