Tutoring Children and Youth

Tutoring Children and Youth (TCY) ministries are designed to share Christ with children
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

In a Tutoring Children and Youth ministry, tutors often work one-on-one with students, but might also teach in small groups.

Learn to tutor, and also organize a ministry, through a Tutoring Children and Youth (TCY) workshop!
