Benefits to Your School
“The church has easily contributed over a million dollars in time, talent and resources to this school, but there is no price that can be assigned to the legacy of hope and inspiration they offer this community with their acts of service and love. The gains that we are seeing at Roosevelt are a testament to the tremendous power of the two communities working together on behalf of our amazing students.”
– Charlene Williams Principal, Roosevelt High School
- Increase time spent on education and student growth
- Demonstrate the power of community to youth
- Present an environment of hope and inspiration to children, parents, and staff
Time/Energy Involvement of Your Staff
“By partnering with SouthLake Church, we have been able to leverage our resources, increase our capacity and also increase the quality of service that we provide to our students."
– Nike Greene Family and Community Support Coordinator, Roosevelt High School
By working with a single point-of-contact (Site Coordinator), time and energy required by school staff is minimal. As proven at Roosevelt High School in Portland, school staff is able to increase classroom time.
“No Agenda” – Help without Strings
Net Impact: You decide how and where you’d like help –food, clothing, tutoring, property maintenance, athletic programs, etc. You establish the parameters you’re comfortable with and reap the benefits of an energetic and focused volunteer pool.
If you’ve been contacted by a church, the first step is to select a project that is easy enough to complete quickly. This establishes a trusted partnership and helps to work out the kinks found in any new program.
You decide how you’d like the church to help. They provide a Site Coordinator to work with you and your staff on the project details. The Site Coordinator is responsible for managing all church volunteers, procuring supplies, and allocating any needed tools or equipment.
Simply set up an initial meeting to discuss your needs. The Site Coordinator takes it from there!
