Volunteers from Christ Church come in once a week to mentor one-to-one with our kindergarten and first grade classes. These mentors value education and donate their time to work with our students on phonics and reading concepts for 30 minutes on their mentoring days.

During our lunch blocks, we have community partners who come in to mentor some of our students. They have lunch with selected students bi-weekly and work on character building, self-motivation, and building ambition.
