and youth while helping them build academic skills needed for school success.
Helping children or youth with schoolwork…
- increases positive self-esteem as students’ reading skills or other skills improve
- enhances students’ feelings of worth as they learn about the God who loves them
- provides a reason for students and families who do not attend church to do so
- demonstrates Christ-like concern
- builds relationships with students and their families, providing a platform for sharing the Gospel
