At Risk Youth
Outside of Covid-19, these are our ongoing impact areas and serving opportunities. Currently, many of our community partners are not receiving volunteers, or they are taking volunteers, but volunteering looks different for them at this time. We would love for you to learn about what Christ Community Church is doing in these impact areas and partnerships. Stay tuned for future serving opportunities.
Did you know that we can predict the future success of a student by looking at their third grade reading levels? When a third-grader does not meet state standards, their likelihood of graduating goes down. This translates to increased high school dropouts and increased prison rates.
By walking alongside students at the elementary level, we can participate in their development through programs like Kids' Hope USA. From a larger community view, organizations like One Collective, Elgin are working to network a collaboration of resources for the betterment of the community at large.
Christ Community Church partners with organizations which prioritize and provide opportunity for outreach rather than just serving for the sake of serving.
