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 are launching GROW, expanded tutoring program for remote learning days.

Our GROW program exists to help students
Grow as
Reliable leaders in both
Online and in person

Because of the Gaston County Schools hybrid schedule, we have expanded our tutoring program. We will have 4 sessions 4 hours a day for 5 days per week, with up to 20 students socially distanced in each session, Mornings 10-2 and Afternoons 2-6

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. The online application links are:
Please let us know if we can help, or if you are interested. 980-785-4442
