School Partners

JOIN US IN MAKING A DIFFERENCE

It only takes one volunteer, one student, one staff member, one connection, one opportunity to share the love of Jesus.

Why School Partners?

Our goal is to support the staff and students of our local partner schools by demonstrating the love of Jesus in practical ways. There are in-person opportunities such as volunteering in a classroom, staff hospitality, and working with individual students or small groups. We also provide at-home options such as virtual tutoring, writing encouraging notes to staff, and assembling learning materials. Every act of love can make a difference. We are truly the church when we move out beyond our own walls to bring Jesus to those in our own community.

Donations

Your financial gift allows us to be ready for the unique needs of our partner schools. We consistently use donations to provide supplies and support to the students and teachers.

Some Ways We Serve

At Home Support

Volunteers can be extremely useful without leaving home. Tasks may include, but are not limited to – assembling school supplies, virtual guest reading and tutoring, and preparing learning/enrichment materials.  Volunteers may choose to participate in a one-time activity or commit to a regular schedule. The purpose of this team is to support the students and teachers without actually being present in the schools.

 

Staff Support

Volunteers are needed to provide one-on-one support and encouragement to  staff members at our partner schools.  At least three times during the school year, the volunteer will send a note and small token to the staff person. The purpose of this program is to let the recipients know that they are seen and appreciated. Volunteers will be provided with a preference sheet specific to their partner.

Daytime - In A School

NOT AVAILABLE AT THIS TIME.
Kensington volunteers can make a difference by spending time in a partner school.  Among other opportunities – you can provide learning support to an individual child or small group or assist a teacher with classroom tasks. The purpose is to connect with students and teachers who are often over-looked and in need of encouragement.

 

Hospitality

Many of our partner schools do not have parent groups that support and celebrate the staff.  As a volunteer with this team, you can make a difference by hosting or helping with staff appreciation opportunities. When the teachers are uplifted, they are better able to give their time and energy to the students. The purpose of this team is to bring joy and encouragement to the staff. We are open to all ideas and suggestions

What better way to encourage the education of a child then to show you are personally invested in their success? Our School Partners’ Back-to-School Outreach invites you to make an impact on the education of a local student – actually 4,000 of them – from one of our ten local partner schools. Like everyone during this season, we’re having to adapt, so we’re gathering school supplies virtually and being creative in how we volunteer.  Join us by using your online shopping skills for a good cause!
