We are going to start a Homework Group. The purpose of this group is to help the youth in our community to do better in school. To do this, we are looking for volunteers, primarily retired or active teachers and professionals.
You won’t have to commit to helping every week, but only when you are able. We will be planning on offering this service to the youth on Mondays and Wednesdays for about 1.5 hours after school, starting in the fall. We also plan to canvass other congregations for volunteers. We will be having a meeting as soon as possible to go over the plan with any volunteers. Along with the Soup Kitchen, this is another way to show Portage that First Presbyterian Church is still relevant in the community.
If you are interested, or have questions, please speak to Keith Kelly (857-5712) or John Zondag.
