Making a difference in the education of at risk 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: 418 Aberdeen Ave (Out of Inner City Youth Alive) and Calvary Temple (3rd Floor). Our Calvary Temple (CT) Campus principally serves a student population new to the English language, ages 5-19. Our main Aberdeen (AB) Campus is a Grade 6-10 school, emphasizing reading, writing, and math for kids who already speak English.
We are primarily focused on at-risk kids, and we are presently serving kids from about ten nations – Cree, Tanzania, Metis, Kaska, Canada, Eritrea, Congo, Ojibway, Ethiopia, Burundi. We emphasize reading, writing and math in a Christian setting, and we’d loved 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.
