One of Parker Street Ministries biggest needs right now is for volunteers high school age and above to serve in our year-round Academic Enrichment Program, Monday-Thursday from 10am-12pm (June-July) by helping students with homework and playing academic games with them. Volunteer tutors serve from one to four days a week. We look for a weekly commitment while knowing there will be some schedule conflicts. By choosing to volunteer at Parker Street Ministries, you can have the assurance that you will help narrow students’ achievement gaps and that their lives will be touched. This is also a great way to do good while earning community service hours. There are also opportunities to lead extracurricular activities. If you have questions or are interested in volunteering in this way or in other ways, please email Hannah Scruggs at firstname.lastname@example.org call (863) 682-4544.
