Volunteer Week - JustLead
Did you know that Points of Light strives to create a culture of volunteerism and is the world’s largest organization dedicated to volunteer service? Emerald is thankful to be partnering with them to make a difference in the community and the ability to serve with so many great volunteers.
JustLead’s afterschool program for elementary and middle school students includes tutoring, homework help, health/fitness/nutrition instruction, field trips and service learning opportunities. Additionally, we offer discipleship opportunities for all ages, including mid-week Bible study, small groups, corporate worship and inter-generational faith activities. With over 900 students in our JustLead ministry, we know that we could not make this happen without our volunteers!
Clair Franks said "I volunteer with Emerald’s JustLead program because…
I am involved in a service learning class at UT. Getting an opportunity to volunteer with Emerald through this class has been amazing and I love working with these kids! I am going to continue volunteering even after my class."
Anne McGinnis said "I volunteer with Emerald’s JustLead program because…
I know how important our youth are and I have a responsibility to them. I believe God has plans for our lives and I know he is pleased when I use my abilities and time He gives to benefit others."
Currently, Emerald Youth is seeking adults who can serve as tutors for elementary and middle school students; provide homework help to elementary students during the school year; and/or lead a small group or worship time.
