Several programs are offered to the neighborhood children. Volunteers come in as reading, math and cooking/baking tutors. Mentors are matched up with children to help the children grow in self confidence and give them positive experiences.
Other programs that have been offered are fine arts weekly, working in the community gardens, a 5 week Girl Scout experience, earthworks, knitting, girls and boys chorus, Camp Notre Dame, teen neighborhood watch and service club, and field trips to local events. The Villa Maria high school students also come once a month to play board games with our children.
