VOLstarter-University Assisted Community Schools

The College of Education, Health, and Human Sciences has so many awesome ways in which you can Big Orange Give!  One way is through a CEHHS outreach program, University Assisted Community Schools.

University Assisted Community Schools is a grant based initiative which partners with Pond Gap Elementary School students. The full-service program is an extension of the regular school day for 92-100 students which also reaches out to serve the community.

These VOLstarter funds will provide for a monthly meeting with the parents and families served in this school via the UACS program. The parents will be invited for a “Monthly Meals With a Mission” which will allow hard working parents to sit with their children and learn more about the programs and lessons they are involved in every day.  They will also have the opportunity to meet fellow community members and connect with them in the goal of supporting the children.

We encourage you to choose this option when making your choice for the Big Orange Give!
