Partner Schools Ministry

We show Christ’s love to the most vulnerable in Kansas City by providing hope through education and literacy initiatives.

We build relationships, share knowledge and serve children and families in need. By showing Christ’s love to the most vulnerable through educational opportunities, we believe we can break the cycle of poverty in Kansas City. Share your unique gifts by empowering people in Kansas City to stop the cycle of poverty and helping those in need to become self-sufficient! You can do this by:

  • Helping at upcoming Partner School Events.
  • Serving during regular school hours in Resurrection partner schools as a tutor or classroom buddy.
  • Tutoring children after school at Grace United.
  • Sharing your love of reading and distribute books to students and join the bookmobile team.
  • Becoming a liaison or an assistant to a liaison at one of our partner schools.

View details about many of volunteer opportunities below. There are opportunities for everyone - families, small groups, adults and youth 12 and older. Be a part of giving a hand up to these deserving children and adults!
