Relating Educating And Communicating Hope
"God has blessed us ... to be a blessing."
KidREACH builds one to one mentoring relationships with at-risk elementary students in our neighborhood.
Due to the current COVID-19 outbreak and the resulting closure of Tahoma Schools, the Maple Valley Church KidREACH program has been suspended.
We provide help and encouragement for students identified as academically and/or economically at-risk. One volunteer tutor works with one child each week to build a relationship, assist with homework (basic reading and math), social skills, and foster hope.
Do YOU have a couple of hours a week to help with school work and be a friend to a child?Please fill out the Volunteer Information Request and we will contact you as soon as possible.
Our session goes from October through May and follows the Tahoma school calendar and breaks.
We always have a need for substitute tutors to join us at any time of the year.
When?Tutoring sessions are held October through May (with the normal school breaks off), Thursdays from 3:00 to 5:00 pm.
Why?During their Thursday afternoons at KidREACH, each student has the full attention of a caring adult/older youth mentor. We work in partnership with each child’s teacher and family serving as Christ’s hands and feet, demonstrating His love for them in practical ways.
No experience is needed! Training is provided.
How YOU can help:

- If you can’t make a weekly commitment, we also need substitute tutors, snack helpers, administrative help, special event planners and PRAYER partners.
- High School Seniors: consider mentoring an elementary school student for community service hours.
- PRAY - Ask the Lord to equip and empower us to help the children He sends our way to realize their God-given potential. And to bless and multiply our efforts to extend His love to children, families, and teachers in our community, in His name.
