Cornerstone offers a variety of meaningful opportunities for individuals and groups to get involved with our school through tutoring, mentoring, coaching, and more. Whether you can commit to once a day or once a year, there are opportunities for every type of volunteer to participate.
Here are just a few ways you can partner with us:
Have lunch with a student! This is a weekly commitment of 30 minutes. Depending on the age of the student, lunch times will vary.
Elementary Art Room Volunteer
Help in the Art Room on Tuesdays or Thursdays from 9:00 – 11:00 am at the elementary school.
Elementary School Tutor
Tutor a student in reading and/or math for 30 minutes to an hour. This is a weekly commitment.
Work one on one or in small groups, weekly for 45 minutes to an hour after school, helping students with homework and fostering friendships.
Elementary Friday Clubs
Work with kindergarten – 3rd-grade students during their Friday clubs. Clubs currently offered are singing, dancing, drawing, dodgeball, yoga, STEM, and bracelet making. This is a commitment on Fridays from 2:00-3:00 pm for six weeks at a time. The next season of clubs begins on April 3rd.
Provide a meal for Cornerstone athletes before home games.
- Become a coach! We rely on volunteers to help coach various sports at all three schools.
Mentors are trained and matched with a Cornerstone 4th or 5th grader by our friends at the Aspire Movement. Mentors spend an average of 5 hours per month with their student, not following any specific curriculum but simply incorporating their lives together in a way that fosters discipleship and mutual growth. For more information, contact Blakely Barley.
