get involved

We are called in 1 Peter 4:10 to use our gifts in the service of others, “faithfully administering God’s grace in its various forms.” What better way to serve the Lord than by loving on the kids of St. Johns?

All  volunteers must meet our high standards.  Side by Side Kids requires a review of the potential volunteer’s background, including reference checks and a complete criminal background screening that utilizes the records of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Volunteers must also attend training, including a review and acknowledgement of our organization’s Child Protection Policy, before they are allowed to participate in the SBSK Afterschool Program.
