The Well's Partnership Schools

Posted August 24 by ENP Staff

The school year has begun and the doors are wide open with opportunities to serve at one of The Well's partnership schools! If you have a heart for kids, schools and the future of our city, consider being a part of one of these ministry teams.

North Campus - Susan B. Anthony Elementary

Fig Campus - Powers Elementary

LITERACY MENTORS: https://everyneighborhood.org/literacymentor/)

Volunteer one morning a week from 8:30am-10:00am. Work one on one with students who need a little extra help with reading, and the encouragement of another positive adult in their life. You will be paid with the MOST amazing smiles! Training and support provided.

SATURDAY SPORTS

Start Date: September 8 at both Susan B. Anthony and Powers

A morning of sports, crafts and games for kids in the neighborhood. Saturday Sports gives kids a safe place to play on the weekend and the opportunity to spend time with positive role models who want to invest in their lives and most importantly, share the love of Jesus!

AFTER-SCHOOL TUTORING

Help kids with homework after school (2:30pm-4:30pm at Susan B. Anthony Elementary)

HOSPITALITY

Do you love to cook, bake or serve? There are opportunities throughout the year to bless the staff, including a lunch for the Susan B. Anthony staff on Monday, October 29.

FOOD TO SHARE

If you have a heart to feed the hungry, you can help students who are collecting and sorting packaged food left over from school lunches (instead of being thrown away). This food is picked up each day and shared with underserved areas of our city. (11:30am-1:00pm at Susan B. Anthony - volunteer one or more days/week)

CARNIVAL

Volunteers help each year at the school carnival during Serve Fresno Week in the spring.

Date to be determined

There are many opportunities throughout the year. If you would like to be a part of one of these ministry teams, contact Carol Young at 559-696-1892 or carol@everyneighborhood.org.

HISTORY OF THE WELL & EVERY NEIGHBORHOOD PARTNERSHIP

The Well has been partnering with Susan B. Anthony since 2002. It began with a simple two-hour Saturday morning ministry called the Patty Project (now called Saturday Sports). In those early years, as relationships developed with the children and families in the neighborhood, volunteers became aware of other opportunities to love and serve in the school and neighborhood. They began mentoring students, volunteering on campus and serving in various ways with projects in the neighborhood. Every Neighborhood Partnership was formed in 2008 to help other churches partner with schools in our city. The Well’s relationship with Susan B. Anthony was the inspiration to form ENP, and now more than 50 schools have a church partner!

The opportunities to serve today are even greater!

The North Campus partners with Susan B. Anthony, and the Fig Garden Campus partners with Powers Elementary. Both schools have a team of Literacy Mentors, an active Saturday Sports Program and many other opportunities to serve throughout the year
