Kids have many qualities, some good, some… well, not so much! But one quality they all share is good intuition about who likes them and is comfortable being with them. At United Crescent Hill Ministries, we have been blessed to have a youth staff person who not only likes children, but who loves them. Who is not just comfortable with them, but enjoys being with them. And who has excellent leadership qualities, great common sense, and is smart enough to help withhomework! That’s a Home Run in my book! Unfortunately, Pauline Kollar, who has been working with me in the youth program since the beginning of last summer has been given an opportunity to head up a program at her church that uses every one of her extraordinary abilities. We will all miss her very much!
Of course, that means that I have to replace her. She’s got a big heart and big shoes, but I know there’s someone out there who would love to work hard for not great pay for 15 – 18 hours a week with kids who need understanding from caring adults! We have great kids, but they all come with lots of homework and tutoring challenges. UCHM’s After School Youth Program offers dependable structure, healthy snacks, and adult supervision by people who want to be here with them.
If you are a retired school teacher, or wanted to be a school teacher, and/or know how to do math and read well, and enjoy working with elementary and middle school youth, please call me at 893-0346, ext 103. I need you in January, if possible! Your age doesn’t matter, just the level of caring you bring for kids. Don’t miss this opportunity to meet and work with some very nice young people. Contact us here.
