Champion Mentors at Waller Road Elementary Fall 2017

September 5th - December 5th, 2017

How did you feel in Elementary School? Did you need more confidence? Did you ever wish someone would tell you you are not a loser? That you have something inside of you to be what no one else can be? How was your home life? Was your home life stable, were you one of the kids that your parents were going through tough times, maybe a divorce? Was home a lonely place? Well, what if we could flip the switch in some small young life and aim them toward hoping and believing for a life-giving future? At an elementary school-age!

Seeing young elementary lives looking forward to a brighter future. Equipping them to move life forward.

We have an awesome opportunity to make a difference in our community by guiding, mentoring and shining a positive light to the future leaders. We are adopting the Waller Road Elementary School during the school year of 2017-2018. Just think of different ways, that can happen in a short amount of time, that you could be a part to raise up young champions.

Waller Road Elementary is 100 years old and though it is the smallest school in Puyallup with 360 students it is slowly growing. It is a very diverse school and has high economic needs.

We have been told the student’s greatest need is consistency in volunteering with supervision, mentoring kids, helping in the classroom and giving them one on one time.

Many of the students are experiencing poverty, may not have a mother or father figure at home. Some are homeless or living with another family because they have been kicked out of their own, etc, and are in need of love and attention. We cherish the opportunity to give them some of that love and attention they so desperately need.

We are looking to build a consistent team of volunteers so that, as Champions Foundation, we are a presence in their school and are able to build relationships.

Volunteers are also required to download and complete the attached waiver and WSP background check.

All registrants are required to fill out a WSP background check authorization each year. If you need to fill out this authorization select the Volunteer w/ Background Check option. (If you have already done this for 2017, you can sign up for a new event simply by selecting the Volunteer option.)

Details:

  • 3 month commitment

  • Volunteer bi-weekly during the school day for several hours OR as an after school tutor

  • Have an enthusiastic attitude with a servants heart to support the teacher's needs and build relationships with students

Sign up and we will equip and work with your time and your talents. And then bring someone along side of you. You may discover that this is why you were born. To help navigate, change the course in a child's life forever.
