School Partners


Kensington’s School Partners volunteers come alongside students and families in under-resourced schools near each of our campuses. It’s Kensington’s way of being the hands and feet of Jesus in the local community. The vision is hope, the goal is relationship, and the tools are many - including sports, art, music, and academic support. Want to get involved? We’d love to help you put what you love to do into action in the schools or check out the opportunities listed below.
