Service Times


Here are the ways that YOU can be involved in loving the city through Kids Hope:

Get Involved: One Hour at a Time

MENTOR Invest one hour per week in the life of a child! You will be screened, trained, and paired with one “at-risk” child at Eagle Rock Elementary. Mentors meet faithfully for one hour weekly, at the school, during the school day. At the end of each session they complete a daily progress report summarizing the mentoring session.

Commitment Level: 
  • Weekly = 1 hour, plus 4 hours of training at the start of the school year  
  • Mentor must commit for one school year (9 months)
  • Mentors meet with students during one of these sessions:
    • Monday: 2:30 – 3:30 pm
    • Tuesday: 1:30 – 2:30 pm
    • Wednesday: 2:30 – 3:30 or 3:30 – 4:30 pm
    • Thursday: 2:30 – 3:30 pm

Prayer Partner: Make a commitment to pray for one mentor/child pairing. Prayer partners contact the Mentor on a regular basis for a progress report on the relationship, the child’s strengths and weakness, and any other prayer needs, including joys and concerns.

Commitment Level: weekly, at prayer partners discretion

Substitute Mentor: “Super-Subs” provide a critical link in maintaining a relationship that is being formed with the child. They provide continued one on one mentoring and affirmation for a child presently involved in Kids Hope when his/her regular Mentor is unavailable. The Super Subs primary role is to affirm the child. Their presence when the regular Mentor is absent says to the child, “Yes, we are committed to you”. Super-Subs serve on an “on call” basis throughout the school year and help maintain consistency in student’s lives.

Commitment Level: as needed

Teacher Volunteer: We know you love kids–you work with them every day! We’d love to tap into your expertise to help assist mentors with specific objectives (such as reading strategies or specific math concepts) as they come up during the year.  Your name and contact information would be listed as a resource for mentors to connect with when they are really stumped in how to help their child learn.

Volunteer Artist: Do you have a passion to share your talent with kids? Become part of our Kids Hope Creative Arts team. We dream of offering six-week classes in Art, Music, Dance, Drama, Guitar, Karate…and more! We see this as “distributive justice”– taking the talents we have and sharing them with kids who otherwise might never have the opportunity to explore and use their artistic gifts. This is a new element of our program, so lets start a conversation!

Commitment Level: on call, one day a week for six-week blocks

RN Nurse: We are in the early phase of developing this part of our ministry, so it will likely evolve as we move forward. But to give you an idea, we are looking for RN’s who could donate a few hours a week or a month to volunteer at the school (Eagle Rock elementary). There are 1000+ kids at the school and we only have a nurse one day a week. The other days of the week the secretaries end up doing a lot of putting on band aids, distributing asthma medications, dealing with minor bumps with ice packs, stopping nosebleeds, etc. If you would like to join us as we navigate this new way to serve, we would love to talk!

Commitment Level: A few hours a week or month

Event Team Volunteer: Serve in areas of hospitality, prayer, and hosting special events (parties for the kids and their families at CA, assembling Christmas goody-bags, etc).

Commitment Level: 3 or 4 special events during the school year

We are so excited you are considering being a part of our “Kingdom Efforts” here in Eagle Rock. It is through the faithful service of our Mentors and Prayer partners that we are able to reach out in our community and touch the precious lives of children at our public elementary school. How exciting to be the hands and feet and heart of Jesus for boys and girls who may never get a chance to hear of His love for them.
