Hearts of Mercy Programs
As a nonprofit positive youth organization, we work with children in our community all year and focus on education, enrichment, and empowerment. Find out more about what we do below.
One of the central focuses of Hearts of Mercy is the tutoring program. Twice each week, students meet individually with their tutor for 60 minutes to complete homework or share reading time.
Hearts of Mercy maintains contact with teachers and administrators to target the academic needs of each student and track their progress.
Hearts of Mercy tutors build strong connections with their students and are committed to their success. The benefits of a mentoring relationship are numerous. Students gain practical advice, encouragement and support as they learn from the experiences of others.
As their social and academic confidence increases, students become more empowered to make healthy decisions. Mentored students also develop strategies for dealing with both personal and academic issues.
SPORTS AND ENRICHMENT
Hearts of Mercy recognizes the importance that sports and recreation play in the healthy development of a child’s body and spirit. We provide opportunities for children to participate in school and community sport teams, dance or gymnastics, arts classes, etc. By partnering with local organizations, we support children’s participation with related fees, transportation, uniforms and gear – and cheers on the side lines!
Summer camp is available for interested children. Trips to area beaches and family picnics in the park are planned each year. Area churches support and encourage the participation of our students in their youth group meetings each week.
