We are always amazed at the countless number of students we meet who carry within themselves a resilience that goes against all odds. These are the kids who come from broken homes & families who suffer various forms of hardship (as an example, all of our partner schools are above 90% free/reduced lunch) – and yet, often children have an innate desire to thrive, all they need is the caring support of an adult who believes in their future.
Who was that person for you? A parent? A teacher? A volunteer?
Communities In Schools of Lakewood has many opportunities for you to step into the life of a student right when they need it most & help them to nurture that resilience – empowering them to succeed, in school and in life. We offer the chance to tutor after school, assist in our after school programs, or mentor a student or group of students. Several after school opportunities where you can get involved include:
- Sports club
- Arts and Crafts
