HEARTS is a tutoring program that was founded by St. John’s to help Newport Independent Students increase reading levels as well has perform better on daily homework assignments. Members and friends go to one of the local schools each week to work with students on these tasks and serve as a mentor to them as well.
Participants of this ministry enjoy the time they spend with the children as well as the bonds they develop with them. Children at the end of the school year celebrate their achievements with their tutors as they move on to the next level thanks to the support of their tutors.
If you or someone you know would like to volunteer for this program please contact the church office.
