MUST Ministries

MUST Ministries has several Cobb county students living at the Elizabeth Inn shelter with their families. They are working to create spaces on campus where these students can complete their school work while also maintaining safe, social distancing. They are in need of a few volunteers willing to supervise and provide tutoring assistance as needed for these students. Experiencing homelessness is already a major disruption for these students; online schooling further challenges their ability to feel stable and secure. If you have a desire to help MUST serve these vulnerable students, they would love to add you to their schedule of volunteer tutors.

When: Monday- Friday 8:00 am-12:00pm (weekly commitment preferred)
Where:
Elizabeth Inn Campus - 55 Elizabeth Church Rd. Marietta
Volunteers needed: 2 or 3 per day
Age requirements - volunteers must be age 18 or older and complete a background check.
Skills needed:
Patience, tutoring experience is helpful but not required, comfortable using computers, and more patience.

Mentorship Program

Kennesaw Mountain High School

NMC is partnering with Kennesaw Mountain High School (KMHS) and Riverstone Church to implement a virtual character education class for the students at KMHS. We will be using the curriculum from Growing Leaders (by Tim Elmore). This Habitudes curriculum is focused on social and emotional learning that has the potential to help students navigate everyday life during these tumultuous times. This is an amazing opportunity to partner with a public school to influence and support students directly. If you're interested in being a mentor and leader to high school students in our community, the monthly time commitment is only 1-2 hours. Currently, the curriculum will be offered over Zoom calls, and once classrooms on their physical campus resume, you will be matched with students in a homeroom.

Mentorship Program

Marietta Mentoring for Leadership

Marietta Mentoring for Leadership is a non-profit program house in Marietta Middle and High Schools, serving under-resourced, high-potential students in grades 7-12. Community volunteers are matched 1:1 with a student who could benefit from a mentor, spending typically 1-2 hours per month with their mentee. The program staff offers academic support and coaching for students, training, and resources for mentors, and opportunities for local businesses and churches to partner financially and experientially. You don't have to have all the answers or have life figured out completely (because who does?) to be an effective mentor; having a listening ear, a love for people, and the willingness to share your time can make a huge impact on a student in Marietta.
