Calling all volunteers! If you want to significantly impact the life of a child, then become a Homework Buddy. There are so many first through fifth graders in the Colleyville/Grapevine Independent School District system who need help with their homework with emphasis on reading and comprehension skills. You don’t need to have any special certifications. What we need are enthusiastic, engaged, and dedicated volunteers who are ready to help a child.
When: Beginning in September. Volunteers are needed each semester of the school year.
Time: 3:00 – 6:00 pm, Monday – Thursday (volunteers are asked to commit to 1 day/week or more per semester)
Where: Grapevine Community Outreach Center, 3010 Mustang Dr., Grapevine, TX 76051
Age Requirements: Must be at least 14 years of age and pass a background check (note: credit hours are awarded as needed)
What To Expect: During the 3 hour time frame, kids will spend approximately one hour on homework and the rest of the time in recreation, computer time, games, art, listening to guest speakers, and on occasion will go on field trips. They will also receive a snack and dinner. Volunteers are encouraged to form a bond with the kids, share life stories and experiences, and inspire the kids.
***Please note Kids Matter International in the
