Hope For Opelousas is starting up an exciting new ministry called Hope on the Hill. It's a tutoring program for school-age children in the Hill neighborhood of Opelousas. It will run Tuesday through Thursday from 3:30 p.m. until 6:30 p.m. each week, beginning in August when the public schools are back in session. We have made many plans and obtained lots of resources to get this program started, but in order for it to be successful, we need volunteers who are willing to serve by helping to tutor children with homework, practice math and/or reading skills, or providing food (meals or snacks).
Now, if you think you don't know how to tutor kids, we've got just the prescription. Hope For Opelousas will provide an orientation and training session on Tuesday, August 5, 2008 at 5:30 p.m. Stop by for a while to find out what this is all about and learn everything you need to know to help our young people in the Hill neighborhood strengthen their reading and math skills.
