After School Program

The After School Program serves approximately 30 elementary and middle school students throughout the year with a holistic approach to ministry. To contact us about enrolling a child or volunteering, email us at friends@friendshiphouseroanoke.org or call us at 540-343-5437.

We aim to reach our children Spiritually

We want our children to know who God is, as He is revealed through His Word.  So we teach daily from God’s Word and work on memorizing passages of the Bible with the kids. We also pray with and for our kids each day.

 

We aim to reach our children Mentally

We offer tutoring and homework help each day throughout the school year. Additionally, we’ve partnered with the Roanoke City Library to offer regular STEM labs.

 

We aim to reach our children Physically

It is important to us that the children have the freedom to explore and have a balance of structured and unstructured play time.  So they get lots of free play! On top of that, we have a weekly running club called “Marathon Club” and take the kids on regular hikes.  We also offer a balance of healthy snacks and groceries that they can take home to their families.

We aim to reach our children Socially

We work to mentor our kids and help them develop healthy friendships with one another.

Once the summer hits, we continue to offer programs to our children.  Since their schedules are more flexible, we try to get them out of the city as much as possible. Each week during the summer we go on trips to local parks, hikes in the mountains, and try our hand at swimming.
