The Parkview Collective exists to Equip Children and Families through safe relationships to foster restoration, dignity and hope.
The Collective Volunteer Roles
There will be 30 students per club. These are interest-based clubs that either teach a new skill or encourage what the students already know. We’ve done, cooking clubs, arts and crafts, games, math, and physical activities to name a few.
Middle School After School Tutoring
Jefferson Middle School has an ambitious goal of seeing all of its students involved in an extracurricular activity after school. Our Middle School Tutoring program will help students complete (and turn in) their homework as well as expose students to a variety of different professions throughout the program.
Elementary Reading Buddies
Schafer Elementary Monday- Thursday 9-10a, 10-11a, 11a-12, 1-2p) (10 volunteers needed)
District 45 recently implemented a new reading curriculum that requires students to read for a minimum of 20 minutes a day. For a variety of reasons, some of our students really struggle to complete this task. That is where you come in! We are looking for volunteers to come during or after school to read with and encourage our students. In addition to helping kids read, we have also seen how reading with an adult 1-1 has encouraged kids to attend school.
Every person benefits from having loving people in their lives that cheer them on, and whom they can go to for encouragement, advice, and help in life. You will be giving these kids an opportunity to see beyond their everyday lives and think/dream big. You and your mentee can share all kinds of activities you already like to do. Play sports together. Read books. Or just give some advice and listen. Whatever it is you enjoy, odds are you’ll enjoy it even more with your mentee—and you’ll be making a life-changing impact. By investing a few hours a couple of times a month in your mentee, you will give this kid the invaluable gift of friendship and someone for them to look up to.
Elementary Recess/Lunch Mentors:
11:00am-1:05pm (5 Volunteers Needed)
Volunteers will run games, build relationships and hang out with kids outside during recess.

Don't miss out on this great opportunity!
Middle school is a pivotal time for students. Our after school program is a strategic step to help your student continue on a path of success. With caring adults, in a safe environment, our hope is to empower middle school students inthe following areas: making good choices, developing healthy relationships, and improving academics that will aid in their success both in and out of school.
Our program structure, and its activities, will be a hub for Jefferson middle school students to lead, to be creative and expressive during the after school hours. It’s our endeavor to provide a space where these promising students can build relationships, make connections, and thrive academically.
