Through the church’s subsidiary corporation, Rising TIDE (whose motto is “Uplifting the lives of urban children and youth”), Covenant seeks to
Train Individuals to Develop and Excel
in an after-school program that is free to any member of the community and requires no religious participation.
Monday through Thursday, from 2:30 to 6:30, it provides each day, for about 100 infants through high schoolers a day, homework help, tutoring, classes, enrichment clubs, supervised recreation and a free nutritious supper. From 6:00 to 9:00 it provides middle schoolers and high schoolers support in doing their homework.
Volunteers are needed in tutoring, teaching, mentoring and background support. All volunteers working with children and youth are required to be fingerprinted. All volunteers are given ongoing training and support.
