Volunteer Opportunities:

“Walk With U” - A Saturday program for special needs children ages 6-12.  Every Saturday we have different activities for this group of children to help them learn educational and recreational things and occasionally, a field trip is part of those activities. We are looking for patient and caring Christian adults to commit at least 2 Saturdays to being with the children.  Experience with special needs children a plus but not required.  Most of all, these children just need you to love them. If you have a small group that can commit one Saturday a month for the year, please contact us! Dates: Saturdays 2pm-6pm.

For more information contact Phoebe at 212-334-2033 x20.

English Study Buddies - Tutors are needed for immigrant students for one-on-one English tutoring. Many of the students are new to the states and have a difficult time in school due to poor language skills.  Some Chinese (spoken) is helpful but not necessary. In addition, many of the kids just need to know that someone cares for them since many of their parents work long hours. Through tutoring, we hope to share the love of Christ with them by our actions. If you are willing to commit 1-2 hours every Saturday to help a child with their English language skills, this is for you. We can provide some training and reading/language materials. Dates: September-June, Every Saturday, 1-2 hours AM or early PM, no holidays.

For more information contact Sky Li at , 212-334-2033 x20.

BRIDGE IN THE GAP (BIG) Mentoring - The mission of BIG mentoring is to provide NYC's at-risk Chinese youth, typically from immigrant backgrounds, with caring Christian adult role models. The primary goal of the program is to offer a mentor to a young person to assist in their adolescent development and to express a redemptive Christian testimony.

Mentors are matched with one youth of the same gender. In addition to one-on-one meetings, there are also scheduled bi-monthly group field trips. We are looking for volunteers who will commit to a year-long program. Training and on-going spiritual guidance provided.

For more information and an application, contact Sky Li at .

AFTER SCHOOL program -

The Herald Youth Center (HYC) is a fun and safe space open during after school hours for youths in the neighborhood. HYC seeks to fill that gap to provide a free and alternative to the streets and local internet cafes. Volunteers are needed to work with kids on homework and tutoring in specific areas.

Other areas for volunteer involvement:

Herald Volleyball Club (HVC) is looking for coaches who play volleyball (no coaching experience required!), and also be role models for high school students. Students will have the opportunity to learn a relevant biblical truth through the season’s theme that’s also related to sports, hear the gospel shared through their coaches’ testimonies, plus spend time in small groups in addition to improving their volleyball skills.

 

The spring season will be a 7-week program that runs from March 29 to May 10 on Saturdays from 10am-4pm. More details about HVC can be found here: http://heraldyouth.org/programs/volleyball/. If you are interested in volunteering as a coach, please see this page: http://heraldyouth.org/volunteer/hvc/.

Autism Ministry - A ministry for Chinese families with children on the autism spectrum ages 4-11 years old. Volunteers are needed for the Children's Play Group (while their parents have fellowship simultaneously) to help with games and activities. Children will engage in exploring art materials as well as interacting with peers and volunteers. These interactive games with music and commands will help them in developing gross/fine motor coordination skills and learn to cooperate with peers. Bible messages will be integrated into activities. Dates: 3rd Saturday/mth from 1-4pm.
