Sunday's during the summer in the YES Communities Neighborhood
Camp Hope is held once a week for 6 weeks in the summer in low-income neighborhoods to nurture a mentoring relationship with children. At Camp, children eat a meal they prepared, participate in learning activities, and receive groceries with recipes to take home. Volunteers of all ages engage with children to provide positive interaction and healthy role-models.
Cook with Kids - Work in small groups of kids guiding them through their cooking lesson.
Read with Kids - Work with two to three kids at a time spending time reading and recording information from their home reading logs; Help children select books to take home for the week.
