The Youth and Education issue area is geared towards working with tutoring and mentoring programs for K-12. Students are able to bond and work closely with children from selected schools and youth programs in the Asheville/Buncombe area.
This Issue Workshop will be focusing on Education Reform. We will be taking a closer look at the differences and similarities of Public Schools & Charter Schools in their efforts to improve public education. We will work in collaboration with Hall Fletcher Elementary and Artspace Charter School for our direct service. Participating in an issue workshop helps you cover your PEG 2 requirement. It provides you with a total of 25 hours of service, which will break down to 16 hours of direct service and 9 hours of education. Participants will choose from one of two service times: Mondays 8:30-10:45 or Thursdays 2:30-5:30 (these include travel time). Educational program meetings will take place on Wednesdays during dinner, 5:45-7:00. For more information please contact Amanda at email@example.com
We offer a variety of on and off campus opportunities to work with youth weekly. These include, but are not limited to, Burton Street Community Center, Kids on Campus and Owen Middle School through the YMCA. For the 2012-2013 school year Burton Street and Kids on Campus are full. But don't be discouraged! There are still a few opportunities avaliable. One being Owen Middle School on Thursdays 2:30-5:30, for information contact Emily Sprouse (firstname.lastname@example.org). We also offer serveral one time trips so check back often.
Sign up to Serve in the fall and winter is a great way to find service opportunites.
