When you sponsor a child for $38/month, you provide more than their education and supplies—YOU ARE THE GIFT to your child. You can help open a child’s eyes to a greater world through letter correspondence, visitation, and prayer.
2. MENTOR A CHILD
A mentor can greatly impact anyone’s life. You can mentor a child in the toughest district in San Francisco, and help them reach new goals.
Through our mentorship program, many students have been inspired to apply to schools of their choice or pursue a dream. Mentors have great joys to walk through up and downs with their child.
3. AIDE A CLASSROOM
Whatever our students are feeling when they walk into the classroom, our teachers are there to receive them. Students are coming from all different situations, including the 40% of the Tenderloin District that lives in single mother homes. The classrooms are safe places for students to learn, and express themselves.
Classroom aides help provide stability for a K-8th grade class. Responsibilities may include organizing books, reading with students, facilitating reading quizzes, organizing scores and reports, and managing a child’s behavior.
4. Child THERAPY
34% of our students are in need of specialized therapy. This number can only increase as more testing can be done for some students. We are looking for Occupational Therapists, Speech & Language Therapists, or Marriage & Family Therapists.
5. SERVE LUNCH TO STUDENTS
Help feed our hungry K-8 students and facilitate a clean and safe lunch period. Our K-8 school offers free lunch to our students every day. Prepare the food, help clean up and wipe down tables, serve plates to each student or help give drink refills.
6. COOK MEALS FOR THE HOMELESS AND INNER CITY KIDS
Cook with love! Help cook a full hearty meal for about 90 K-8 students, and 300 people who are homeless. Our commercial kitchen cooks over 150,000 meals for people in the community. Food is the language spoken to many people in the community and the heartbeat and driving force to many of our ministries and outreaches.
7. ENGAGE WITH INNER CITY KIDS OVER ARTS, MUSIC & GAMES
Super Saturday is a weekly high energy and positive environment filled with arts and crafts, games, worship, and an encouraging message followed by lunch! Make every Saturday Super for our young kids! Super Saturday is one of City Impact's first programs started and is located at 230 Jones St on Saturdays at 10 AM.
8. LEAD OR ASSIST AT KIDS CHAPEL
Wednesday Chapel is a favorite time of the week for many of our students. Help share an encouraging and interactive message to our K-8th grade students on Wednesday mornings! Equivalent to a youth message for ages 5-13. Assist in the background to provide a safe environment of worship and redirect a child to manage behavior.
