Hope in Christ Tutoring Becomes GROW

Since 1999 (now in our 21st year!), our primary outreach has been our school-year afterschool tutoring program. Hope in Christ Tutoring was a 3 day per week after school program. But 2020 is unlike any other year. So at the request of some of our education partners, we launched GROW, expanded tutoring program for remote learning days, after school and now virtual education.

Our GROW program exists to help students GROW
in Great Relationships, Opportunity and Wisdom.

Because of the Gaston County Schools hybrid schedule, we have expanded tutoring .
We have afternoon sessions 4 hours a day for 5 days per week, with up to 20 students socially distanced in each session, from 1 to 5. Students may come on their remote learning days, or after school. We also have virtual tutoring for those not in the hybrid program.

We are so grateful for our partners who are helping us fund this expanded offering for our community: The Glenn Carrie & Lena Foundation, United Way of Gaston County and the Community Foundation. Because of their assistance and the help of our regular donors and sponsors, families can contribute what they are able, up to a fair share of $20 per week.
Students may apply through their schools, or online.
