Community in Christ members who wonder how they can be involved in making life better for others, or how they can share the knowledge they have built up over many years with others who may need it, can take a page from Jane Henderson’s book.
Jane volunteers at the The Link Literacy Project as an English and Maths teacher for grade twos. The aim, she says, is to mentor children who are struggling academically one-on-one or in twos. Jane teaches Maths and English for four hours a week at Yeoville Primary School.
In her words, “This is an extremely worthwhile and well-run project. The overall improvement of the children’s marks over the year is amazing – usually in the range of 40%.”
