Providing a Proven Process for Churches to Serve Schools

Caring for Kids provides a proven process for churches to serve schools, connect with kids and collaborate with other community partners to meet real needs. The Caring for Kids team facilitates the connection process with the school district and with other church and business partners. The volunteers are inspired, trained and equipped to serve outside the walls of the church. There are many levels of engagement: mentoring/reading to students, providing clothing closets onsite, helping with facility projects like painting and landscaping, assisting teachers in the classroom, providing needed classroom supplies, encouraging teachers and more. Caring for Kids is ready to serve your church with easy steps to meaningfully engage in their community to make a real difference. We will also equip your staff and congregation with practical tools for a successful, sustainable school partnership.

Caring for Kids' Four-Step Process

The Caring for Kids school partnerships are facilitated through a four-step process. The process provides the framework to bring the unique needs of the school and the resources of the partners together to help the school and students achieve their goals. Our team is available to help every step of the process.

  • Step 1 - Preparation

    We begin by asking the school district leadership how community partners can help schools achieve their goals. The superintendent and leadership team identify schools needing partners and existing programs. The Caring for Kids team plans envisioning events to engage potential church, business and civic partners with the schools identified by the district. We create a unique menu of district initiatives to share with potential partners. Our team also meets with the principals of the schools desiring partners.

  • Step 2 - Roundtable Connection Event

    The Roundtable Connection Event brings all partners together with the principals to get to know each other and identify the school's top needs. It all begins with the question, "How can we help?" This event sets the stage for ongoing collaboration throughout the year.

  • Step 3 - Implementation of Action Plan

    Once the needs are identified, a simple action plan is created to bring partner resources to help meet needs. Implementation of the plan connects partners to existing district programs and also allows for innovative ideas to meet needs with partner resources. Partners meet with the principal and each other four times annually to monitor progress and build relationships.

  • Step 4 - Sustainability

    Our goal is to build truly sustainable, transformative partnerships that will be impactful long-term. When partners work together, it accelerates the impact. Ongoing feedback, evaluation and celebration are all part of sustainable partnerships. Caring for Kids offers tools, ongoing coaching and special events to make this happen.
