Issues: Children & Youth, Education, Religion

Mission: Our mission is to cultivate a thriving community by nurturing the emotional, spiritual, intellectual, and physical development of our youth and inspiring them to grow to their fulll potential.

Evergreen provides 25 kids in 1st through 6th grade with a safe, fun, and nurturing environment in which to work on homework, improve academic skills, and participate in recreational activities. Children are paired with an adult volunteer, a “Study Buddy,” who helps them with homework and develops a mentoring relationship with them. Because we believe strongly in the importance of relationships, we maintain a low child-to-adult ratio (3:1). Each of our Study Buddies works with the same group of kids each week, allowing them to develop a close relationship and establish consistency in the kids’ lives. In addition to working on homework, Evergreen students complete Rocket Math worksheets to improve their math skills and Read Naturally passages to increase their reading fluency. On Fridays, kids participate in Workshops such as art, community newspaper, computers, and sewing. Workshop experiences stimulate their creativity, boost their self-confidence, and help them discover their gifts and talents.
