We generally hold tutoring on Wednesdays at Graham HS and Thursdays at Cummings HS (~5-6 volunteers needed daily), although the schedule does vary sometimes. Monday's and Tuesday's generally are a combination LifeSkills lessons and tutoring/mentoring (~2 volunteers needed daily). Please check out our website at www.graduatenc.org to learn more about the program. There you will find a video about the program, details about our services, an online calendar, a volunteer signup sheet and signup calednar, and a couple of forms we ask our volunteer tutors to complete.

Children's Museum of Alamance

Office Hours: 9-5 Tuesday-Saturday
Orientation Times:
Description:
History, Accomplishments, and Purpose of our Organization. In 2007, the Hayden-Harman Foundation became the initial catalyst for the Children’s Museum with a $1,000,000 challenge Grant. An exploratory committee was convened, who enthusiastically gave the “green light” to the project. A diverse and committed Board of Directors was recruited along with an Advisory Board of Community Partners. The museum is now incorporated and has obtained 501 (c)(3) status. The Children’s Museum has garnered media attention—numerous feature articles in the local newspaper, county-wide magazine, and on two local television stations. Public awareness sessions have been enthusiastically received and a formal strategic planning process has yielded useful survey results and a database with over 4,500 interested families. The City of Graham has made a firm commitment to the Children’s Museum. They have agreed to: provide a long-term lease on the city property ($1 per year); demolish two houses on the property; install water and sewer taps for the museum; clear and rough grade site; maintain parking lots and landscaping, excluding garden space. In addition to public support from the city of Graham and reaching the $1,000,000 challenge from the Hayden-Harman Foundation, community support in the form of cash and pledges from citizens, corporations, and several foundations has grown from $75 in January 2008 to over $4,000,000 as of May, 2012. The museum has been created to meet the specific developmental needs of children in Alamance County and surrounding areas by working with families, schools, and child-centered organizations. A nationally recognized exhibit planner visited our County, held six focus meetings with adults and children, and created a museum Master Plan. This plan offers exhibits that: are fun, interactive, hands-on, educational, and developmentally appropriate; promote learning in literacy, the arts, geography, history, culture, and science; and are geared toward engaging children from birth to age ten. The museum will also offer a wide variety of programs including in-house workshops, traveling outreach programs, films, birthday parties, camps, and after-school activities. Mission Statement. The Children’s Museum of Alamance County will encourage children to exercise their curiosity, develop their imagination, and discover their world through exploration. The vision is to: provide environments where children and adults are given a unique opportunity to play and create together; promote learning and literacy through a wide array of multi-sensory, interactive hands-on experiences; and instill in children a greater understanding of themselves and their world. People Served by Our Project. The Children’s Museum of Alamance County will serve the residents of Alamance County and those visitors from the surrounding counties (i.e., Guilford, Randolph, Chatham, Orange, Person, Caswell, Rockingham). County statistics (2006) indicate that over 430,000 children (between the ages of 0 and 10) reside within a one hour’s drive of Alamance County, which illustrates the potential impact this museum could have on children and their parents. According to statistics from Alamance Partnership for Children (2006-2007), 46% of the 10,844 children (ages 0 to 5) in the county are considered “low income” and according to the Alamance-Burlington School System website (2006) 46% of the 10, 374 elementary-aged children, who live in the county, are eligible for free or reduced lunch. Benefits to the Community. The Children’s Museum of Alamance County is a venue designed for children ages infant to ten years old, the formative period during which multiple developmental windows are wide open and critical hardwiring of the brain is taking place. This museum will have a positive impact on the community considering the central location and high level of support, including: educational and developmental impact on children, families, and schools; economic development impact; and historical impact, providing opportunities for highlighting the rich diversity of the community itself. The Children’s Museum of Alamance County is situated in the same block as the Graham Library, the Alamance County Arts Council, the Maple Street Center for the Performing Arts, and the Graham Fire and Police Departments. This close proximity will provide a constant source of opportunities for these other organizations to provide visibility to the Children’s Museum and to provide, not a single source of enrichment to the community, but a rich variety all in one location. Even in its infancy, the Children’s Museum of Alamance County has proven to be a magnet, pulling in support from many entities. The following local organizations have made a significant commitment to the success of the Children’s Museum of Alamance County: City of Graham; Alamance County Arts Council; and the Hayden-Harman Foundation. Developing a coalition of community partners provides a unique dimension to the museum. Our Advisory Board includes individuals from a diverse group of agencies, organizations, and businesses who serve the children of our community. By securing this support, the museum gains access to the keen insight these local experts possess. While serving children, this new museum will significantly impact local economic development and the overall “well-being” of the community. The museum is strategically positioned to spur downtown retail development (e.g., 50 visitors per day, spending an average of $34.00 on food, hotels, gifts, etc. will result in an estimated $500,000 in annual revenue to boost the local economy). In addition, this museum will be a recruiting asset for businesses, corporations, and professionals looking to relocate. It will attract visitors from across the Triad and the Triangle area and will be a strong attraction for tourists. The Children’s Museum will become a high-profile regional education-based endeavor that will result in a heightened interest in our community leading to economic growth and improvement. Finally, Alamance County has a rich heritage within its African American and Native American population and strong influence from a growing Hispanic community. These groups, coupled with the rich Southern heritage, will provide a perfect opportunity for the Children’s Museum of Alamance County to provide exhibits that highlight the uniqueness of various ethnic groups. With that in mind, the museum will offer a unique opportunity to bring together individuals from various geographic and demographic areas of the county. With a strong emphasis on literacy and education in general, we anticipate that school readiness will be positively impacted.

Step Up of Alamance

Orientation Times:
Description:
Mission of Step Up Step Up of Alamance is tax exempt non profit transformational ministry targeted at families trapped in the affliction of generational poverty. The ministry goal is to re-train families exhibiting a desire to change by showing them Christ centered life skills. Instead of just a program approach, Step Up is a ministry that partners with the Church and the community to meets the needs of participants through relationships. The ministry approach in dealing with poverty is to view families as needing not only financial resources, but also emotional development, skills development, improvement of physical health, development of appropriate support systems and access to role models. The concise mission statement is, “Providing Christian Community to those living in poverty”. Current Operations Currently the ministry owns through private donations two furnished residences that are provided for approved families. The long term plan is for the ministry to expand where all housing is contiguous or in a complex to enable more families to be given the opportunity to break free from generational poverty. Families live in the residence for a period determined by the family’s willingness to change. This enables families to free up emotional energy and time to enable them to focus on life skill change. The central goal for each family is to attend church so they can be introduced to the love of Christ through a local Church. The Step Up ministry provides counseling to explore the most workable solution for each individual family. A member of the family is to be pursuing employment or pursuing an education that enables the probability of future employment. All families receive Christian financial budget counseling. For families with income this entails keeping receipts of all money spent, no matter how small or insignificant. These receipts are contrasted against the participant’s weekly budget that has been co-developed by the participant and the counselor. Participants are required each pay period to make a significant deposit out of income into a savings account. This is to enable savings for future housing expenses when the participant graduates from the Step Up Ministry. Participants are accountable to meet the requirements of the Step Up home management rules. These rules include proper supervision of children, cleaning and maintenance of the premises, guest restrictions, and alcohol and drug abstinence. The standards of Step Up are necessary to lay the foundation for the discipline needed to reach the goal of improved life skills to break out of the dysfunction resulting from generational poverty. Participants are treated relationally as family and contacted daily. Weekly goals are established for Step Up participants which are developed based on the individual needs of each family. Weekly goals are part of the participants overall treatment plan developed by the Step Up mentor. As relationships develop, the families’ developmental needs become known and are jointly pursued by the Step Up counselor, the Step Up board of directors, and Step Up volunteers. Step Up partners with the community and the Church for professional services needed.

Sustainable Alamance

Office Hours:
Orientation Times:
Description:
Sustainable Alamance is a new Non-Profit organization in Alamance County. Our vision is to expand the dialog on community sustainability by adding the human resource to those of economic and natural resource concerns. Our primary objective is to create jobs and job opportunities for citizens of Alamance County that have criminal histories, and because of that, are effectively shut out from participating in the local economy. When our citizens are released from prison, most have fines to pay, probation fees, attorney fees, and child support. None of these can be paid without income. The alternatives are all too often, a return to prison, a cycle that must be broken.
Additional Notes:
Students will be working with indirect services, working with many county agencies, courts, faith based partners to identify, develop, and place ex-offenders in jobs, and new business ventures where they may work and even own one day. Also developing the marketing support for the community education, web site, brochures, etc. for the agency and any new start ups.

Tristan's Quest, Inc.

Office Hours: M-F 8a-8p
Orientation Times:
Description:
Improving quality of life for children with behavioral, social, academic, and emotional challenges through education and support. Learning about the operation of a small non-profit, promotion of services offered, preparation of newsletters, contact with media, updating website, website design and enhancement, fund raising events, promoting fundraising events, participation in after-school enrichment programs, participation with school children in self-contained behavioral and emotional delayed classrooms. Students should expect first service experiences to be in the office setting.
Additional Notes:
Tristan's Quest has a strong reputation for providing quality innovative services to children and adolescents throughout the community. We have worked hard to develop strong relationships with 9 different colleges and universities to provide a unique pre-professional experience for graduate and undergraduate students from a variety of disciplines. Volunteers must have an initial interview with Dr. Jean or Ellison, pass a background check, then have orientation and specific training for whatever their job will be. Volunteers are needed to co-facilitate children's programs and perform clerical and data entry work at the Tristan's Quest office. These would be every week throughout the semester, with some flexibility based on the students schedule. Students must be dependable, pleasant, and professional. Despite the organization's long-reaching benefits, the staff is very small (three full-time employees). None of the staff have any experience in marketing or PR, yet they are responsible for any marketing and PR that goes on. Although the staff does their best to maintain an adequate presence in the media, because we are all handling full caseloads and hands-on programming, PR and marketing has not been able to be a top priority. A more strategic PR and advertising campaign would benefit the organization, and in turn, the lives of many more children around the community.
Directions:
Take I-40 West/I-85 South toward Greensboro. Take the Wendover Rd. exit. Turn Right off the exit. Turn Left onto Meadowwood Street (at a light). At the next light, turn Right onto Market Street.

Description:
The "What’s After High School?" Program is a college access and career awareness outreach program originally developed for the Alamance-Burlington School System in 2005 by Robyn Hadley, its Executive Director. It began as a pilot project anchored in the Superintendent’s office in cooperation with various school system departments and community based organizations. The Program's purpose is to: 1. Identify and develop interactive formal and informal networks of people and organizations to engage Alamance-Burlington School System students and their families/advocates about the preparation and life skills necessary for a successful 21st century college and/or career path after high school and 2. Lay a foundation within and between Alamance-Burlington high schools and their respective communities that will ultimately connect the middle schools and elementary schools that "feed" the county’s high schools for the purposes of providing more uniform and consistent student support/counseling services, especially for those students from economically disadvantaged backgrounds who have potential as first-generation college students.
