Urban Hope Inc. was formed to rescue and uplift children, teens and youth in the West Brighton community (North Shore of Staten Island) from a cycle of generational physical and emotional abuse, neglect, poverty, and lack of parental oversight and care resulting in risky social behaviors and poor academic performance.
Volunteers are needed to serve at Vacation Bible School this summer. We are going into 3 New York City Housing Authority communities on Staten Island.
Our VBS program will be on Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday and runs for 5 weeks from July 6 - Aug 12. Each day, we'll have an exciting 4-hour program comprising:
- 50 minutes Group A does Arts/Music
- 50 minutes Group B does games and leadership recreation
- 50 minutes Group C does literacy
- Snacks & Message
- From 10am to 5pm, including setup and break down.
- The event is from 12pm - 4pm so that is the most important time frame.
- If a volunteer can only give a few hours a week, that is fine as well. We have many kids that need to be enriched and have fun.
