The Mission of Rhawnhurst Turning Point is to provide a center for 6-12th grade youth where they can learn, grow, serve and have fun in a safe environment supported by caring volunteers and Christian staff.
We are in need of additional volunteers to help with our weekday Homework Help and Drop-In times. This program runs throughout the school year.
Volunteers are needed Tuesdays, Wednesdays, & Thursdays for 2:30-6pm & 6-9 pm shifts, or anytime from 2:30-9pm. Volunteering can happen once a week, twice a month, weekly, or as agreed upon with our Director.
- helping students with homework
- encouraging progress, keeping students focused and celebrating successes
- guiding students in time management skills as needed
- building relationships with youth through conversations, homework help, board games, movies, etc.
No experience is required, and all volunteers will meet one on one with our Director for conversation, questions, and basic training. All that is needed is a willing heart, a commitment to being present during your volunteer hours, and a desire to make a difference in the lives of the young people at our center.
How To Apply
The first thing we ask potential volunteers to do is to complete our volunteer application which can be found on our website: http://rhawnhurstturningpoint.com/volunteer-application/
This gives us a chance to get to know you a little better and understand what you are looking for in a volunteering experience and the skills and passions you have. Once received, we reach out to potential volunteers to set up a time to meet in person to talk, to share more about who we are at RTP and how you might fit in as a volunteer. Assuming it feels like a good match to all involved, the last step is that all potential volunteers must complete PA State Criminal and Child Abuse Background Checks, both of which are available free online.
You can also email any questions you might have to our Director, Cheryl Lafferty, at RhawnhurstTurningPoint@yahoo.com
