Become a Mentor

Thank you for sharing our passion of helping the future generation to succeed and reach their full potential in school and life!

The Learning ZONE operates during the 10 school months of the year (August - June), three days a week: Tuesday (2 – 6pm), Wednesday (3 – 6pm), and Thursday (3-6pm).

The first portion of our afternoons includes an emphasis on recreation, art, and Christian spirituality.The second portion of our afternoons (beginning at around 4:15pm), we provide concentrated and focused help and support with homework from school. This is our greatest area of need. Even if you can only serve approximately 60 minutes a week in this capacity, it would make a great impact.

Our rootedness in Christian spirituality drives our conviction and passion that every student has great potential, promise, and purpose. And while our program includes Christian teachings and spiritual formation exercises, it is not mandatory to be a Christian to be a volunteer in our program. We do ask, though, that all of our volunteers are willing to respect and engage the teachings and exercises as presented during our times with students.

Our mentors are a group of carefully-screened volunteers. Before you can participate in The Learning ZONE’s daily activities, you must complete and submit a volunteer application. A background check is required. Filling out this form will automatically submit your application to the Business Office of Westside Vineyard Church.

If you would like to print out the application and send it through the post office, you may do so here:
