ESYAC Volunteers Needed


Eagle Soar Youth Activities Center (ESYAC) is in need of volunteers for their Homework Club.  There is a waiting list of youth waiting to get into the program. Without more volunteers, the program cannot accomodate more youth.  Volunteers are needed in the following ways: 

Drivers: Transporting kids on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 2 - 3 p.m (school to Homework Club) and then 4:45 - 5:15 p.m. (Homework Club to home.)
Cooks:  Prepare meals at Homework Club on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 1 - 3 p.m. ESYAC serves a hot meal every time they meet. Food will be provided. 
Tutors: To help at Homework Club on Tuesday and Thursday afternoons from 3 - 5 p.m. 

If you would like to get involved please contact Patti Brent at 530.241.5562 or contact Helen at the Y at 246-YMCA.

ESYAC is a non-profit organization whose mission is to provide at-risk children and their families the support to succeed and the opportunity to believe through programs of tutoring, mentoring, and adventuring.  This program makes such a huge impact on the lives of the children they serve, and, no doubt, changing your own life in the process.

There are several motels in Redding where families live and struggle to raise their children. At most of these locations there are no parks or after school programs within walking distance and the children have only the parking lot in which to play. Their lives are affected by substance abuse, transiency and unemployment. A volunteer staff of teachers, college and high school students, and retirees run an after school and summer program in collaboration with community agencies, private individuals, businesses and churches.  The Y is one of these organizations that partners with ESYAC by providing Y memberships, physical movement and skill building, and Saturday lunch and activities.
