Making a difference in the education of youth in the inner city of Winnipeg Canada
St. Aidan’s Christian School is a school in Winnipeg, Manitoba. We work with students on 2 campuses: 1. Aberdeen Campus (418 Aberdeen Ave – 2nd floor of Inner City Youth Alive building) and 2. Hargrave Campus (3rd floor of Calvary Temple) Our Hargrave campus principally serves a student population new to the English language, ages 4-21. Our Aberdeen (AB) Campus is a Grade 6-10 school, emphasizing reading, writing, and math for students who grew up speaking English.
We are primarily focused on newcomer and aboriginal students. Our newcomer students come from countries such as Eritrea, Ethiopia, Burundi, Rwanda, Congo and Columbia. We emphasize reading, writing and math in a Christian setting, and we would love to have you partner with us in this life-changing work.
While we have teachers who teach the curriculum, and Education Assistants who assist with educating and so much more, we also rely on volunteers. We could use people to do a wide variety of jobs from serving food in our lunch program to helping students with their reading and homework. Let us know how you are interested in helping. If there is a particular skill you have that you would willing to share with our students, please discuss it with us. In order to volunteer, you will need a completed Child Abuse Registry Check and a Criminal Records check, and fill out a St. Aidan’s Christian School volunteer form. Email us to let us know who you are, and what you are interested in doing, and we’ll send you a volunteer form to get you started.
