Volunteer with Kids in Ferguson and Give Every Child a Chance

Every child deserves an opportunity. On Saturday, September 27, the Above&Beyond college readiness program will make its debut at the Ferguson Library. The program is open to children ages 10 and up served by the Ferguson-Florissant School District and is being offered by the Education Exchange Corps at no charge. 

Above&Beyond will take on kids’ perceptions of college, reveal the resources available for college applicants, and assist kids throughout the application and preparation process. It’s never too late to get kids thinking about college, and we will also provide guidance for younger students so that they can start thinking about their futures. 

This is a great opportunity for St. Louis to give every child a chance. We are looking for volunteers who are willing to serve as mentors for children, facilitating discussions during our Saturday programs and following up with their kids during the school year. We have designed the program to get as many qualified volunteers involved as possible. Even if you can only commit a couple of hours on a weekend, we will find a way for you to help the St. Louis community. 

When: Saturday, September 27, 2014, 11:00AM – 3:00PM with volunteer training starting at 10:30 AM

Where: Ferguson Municipal Public Library, 35 N. Florissant Rd.

How: To volunteer, email or
