Submitted by Heather Rosema

We provide free literacy programs for students in the Roosevelt Park neighborhood. Our 25 students spend 2 hours after school improving their reading levels, writing, and being discipled by our staff and volunteers. Our students are starting the year off well, and are excited to learn and get to know each other and their teachers. Our verse this year is Proverbs 3:5-6.

Our volunteer group is increasing! We have 7 volunteers from Calvin College, 2 from Grace Christian University, 4 from The Edge Church, and 3 from our community. Our volunteers are Christians who are passionate about sharing God’s love and helping our students in school. The more volunteers we have, the more one on one time our students receive.
