The vision of Anna’s Place (formerly Anna's Arts for Kids) is to inspire effective change in local youth ages 5 to 13 through academic development, performing arts training, community service, environmental awareness, and health promotion and education.
WHAT YOU DO
Service learners seeking to assist with after-school tutoring and homework help should sign up for a weekly shift on Monday, Tuesday or Thursday. Those seeking to assist with arts activities should sign up for a weekly shift on Saturdays. Service learners seeking to assist with field trips should sign up for the Wednesday shift.
Students serving at Anna's Place on Saturdays are expected to complete 1 Saturday volunteer shift per week over the course of the semester (for a total of 9 shifts)Therefore, studentsmust be willing to serve more hours than most service learning courses require.
*Students serving at Anna's Place during the week are expected to complete 1 shift per week over the course of the semester (for a total of 10 shifts). Since the program is 11 weeks, students can miss one shift with prior notification given to supervisor. Therefore, students must be willing to serve more hours than most service learning courses require.
WHAT YOU LEARN
Service learners can expect to receive hands-on training in child education. They will also learn about issues of poverty and its effect on children and the resourcefulness of children in overcoming the challenges that life presents. Service learners will learn what it means to be a role model for youth who aspire to go to college.
