ENC Germantown Student Ministry

Hey Guys! Please take the time to read this! I am trying to get the word out about the Germantown Ministry on campus. If you know someone who may be interested, please add them.

The ENC Germantown Ministry is an after school program for about 3rd to 5th graders from the low-income town called Germantown nearby Quincy. It is through the Germantown YMCA but they come to our campus for part of their program. This after school program allows volunteers to reach out and love on these children who may not get that kind of attention. These kids desperately need positive role models in their lives, someone to encourage them, someone to be a friend. This is a great chance to serve some children who really need it and be a light in their lives. The ENC volunteers are so special to the kids in this program and we need some more. If you are a social work major, this ministry can go towards you volunteer hours as well. If your an education major, this is a great way to dive in and start getting some experience with kids!

We are currently in need of some volunteers to help out with this program. It runs from about 2:45pm - 5:30pm every Tuesday. Consistency is a very important part of this ministry because it is something the kids need in their lives. If you can only come, but cannot stay for the whole time, that's completely ok! As long as you can come every week!

A typical day looks like this:
2:45 - 3:00 the kids arrive on campus and split up into 3 groups.
3:00 - 3:45 each of the 3 groups goes to one of the 3 stations: Homework, Music, or Team Building Activity/Games
3:45 - 4:00 the kids have snack
4:00 - 4:45 the kids rotate to another one of the 3 stations
4:45 - 5:30 the kids rotate to their final station and then load on the bus to go home.

As a volunteer, you would be assigned to one of the three stations and be a helper to the staff member at that station. You get to interact and hang out with the kids while impacting them in a positive way. It means a lot to these children that some college kids would take some time out of their day to hang out with some little kids.

If this is a ministry you are interested in,or even if you just have some questions, please email me at [email protected] or feel free to message me! If you can't do it this year but would be interested in participating in the future, still e-mail me! I can put you on a contact list for next year. We could really use the help!

Also, if this is not something you are not interested in, feel free to leave the group. I don't want to harass you with notifications for something you have no interest in.
