Kids Hope USA
Kids Hope USA is a national faith-based organization that trains adult volunteers to mentor elementary students. For the past four years, Cumberland Baptist Church has partnered with Kids Hope USA.
Each week during the school year, our mentors go to Pleasant Ridge Elementary School to spend an hour with a select number of children from all five grades. They read, play games, do schoolwork, talk and have fun.
The focus of the mentor’s attention is on the child. It’s always one child per adult for one hour per week. Whenever possible, mentors continue to meet with the same student from one year to the next, for as long as the child is at Pleasant Ridge Elementary School.
