Community in Action: Each One Teach One
Snow Hill Christian Church/ Lowndes County Community Life Center, Fort Deposit, AL
We will have adult day classes and after school tutoring for children. The elderly will teach quilting/mathematics. We will assist students with home work and help them develop a love for reading. This will provide a safe afterschool environment along with a balance meal. Community in Action: Each One Teach One is for grades K-12/senior adults. We will use certified teachers for the afternoon tutorial program. We will provide workshops/ training sessions for lay people to assist in working the children. Educational field trips will be provided for the students on weekends. We will use computer programs to help students move at their own pace. The adults will utilize the center during the day while quilting, etc. - this will help keep them active and feel worthwhile in the community. We will provide a hot meal for the students and adults. This will help ensure that both children and adults are provided a balanced meal. We will intergrate many intergenerational activites as possible.
