Since 2011, Country Club Christian Church has provided volunteers to support students and teachers in grades K – 6 at John T. Hartman Elementary School. Volunteer opportunities are diverse, entail a variety of skills and interests, and are offered at different times during the school day. Volunteers are welcomed by Hartman principal and staff as partners in improving student achievement and success. Our partnership works closely with KCPS Partners In Education office to ensure all of our volunteers have a safe, positive and mutually beneficial experience.
Ways to Volunteer
Become a Tutor (1 Hour, Weekly).
Most tutors spend 1 hour each week helping one or more students. Depending on your student’s needs, you might be asked to help your student read, practice math facts, complete a class assignment or assist in some other way.
Help with Special Events (One time or periodically).
Help greet students and parents on Opening Day, serve lunch to school staff on Parent-Teacher Conference Days, help with simple gardening activities on the school grounds, assist with games on Field Day, and prepare special treats for staff to show appreciation.
Prepare and Deliver Harvesters BackSnacks (Monthly).
Meet at the church one day a month to prepare and deliver the bags of nutritious food from Harvesters for students at risk of not having enough to eat over the weekend.
Location: 81st and Oak Street in Kansas City, Missouri.

Volunteers who work directly with students on a regular basis must complete an annual background check, sign a code of conduct and a release of liability. All of this can be done on the KCPS volunteer website.
