Volunteer Opportunities

We are thrilled with the opportunity to minister to at risk youth and their communities. We would love for you to join us. Every minute and every dollar helps us acheive our goal of helping them see their own worth and purpose in this world. Help us challenge them. Help us encourage them. Help us start the cycle of service within their own communities. Your special and unique gifts can be used within this ministry. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions or would like to talk further about how YOU can help.

Please look and see which volunteer opportunity is calling to you. We'd love to have you join us!

Homework Club:

Our volunteers tutor students four days a week, for two hours after their normal school day. We have had such a great response to such a great need that we now have 2 locations!

Cypress St Location: (Original location) from 3 – 5:30pm after their normal school day. Their “classroom” is the sidewalk in front of a duplex apartment complex. Every day they set up the tables and chairs (and outdoor gas heaters if needed) on the sidewalk. The local teenagers assist them in retrieving the tables, chairs, and other supplies, from a nearby shed where they are stored at the end of each session.

El Adobe Apartment Location: 5:15 – 7:30pm Just down the street from Cypress St. We are expanding our Homework Club to this new location. We are very excited to partner with El Adobo Apartments and the Southern California Seahorses who make this location possible. At this location we will host our program in the community center located next to the community pool. We have 30 kids eager to do their homework and we need caring volunteers to help our kids succeed.

Community members and students from nearby universities serve as volunteer instructors and help the youth in a wide variety of areas, from math to reading, and, when computers become available, basic skills for report preparation and studying via the internet.

To help with Homework Club and receive a meeting location, fill out these forms and send to Letty.

Not sure if you’re ready to commit to being a volunteer? No problem! We would love for you to visit our Homework Club to see if it would be a good fit for you. Contact Letty for more information. Can’t wait to see you there!

Summer Math & Reading Program:

We continue our education programs throughout the summer with our 100% volunteer-run weekly Reading and Math Club. We partner with the city's Community Center and learn through fun, educational games and curriculum. In addition to our education program, we host movie nights, beach days, Bible studies and educational field trips.

We also sponsor groups of children who have participated in the Summer Reading Program to go to summer camp with local organizations. The children get to experience riding horses, swimming, making crafts, playing basketball and volleyball, and playing other fun games. The children are shown how to carry these same attitudes over in other areas of their lives such as: writing letters of gratefulness, keeping things clean and tidy, and making right choices. They learn the value of respect and teamwork.
