Youth Programs


Youth Program

Over 50 middle and high school aged boys come to our campus several days a week to participate in educational and enrichment activities.  While basketball is the "hook,"  we help with homework, mentor these young people, having Bible study and eating together. We need tutors and people  willing to hang out with our boys.  It will be life-changing for you too!  For more information about this wonderful program,click here.

After School Reading Program

 We are partnering with Atkins Technology Elementary School to provide after school tutoring to second and third graders focusing on improving their reading skills. We are tutoring on Mondays and Wednesdays afternoons from 3:15 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.  We need committed tutors and substitutes to spend time with the children of Cedar Grove to help strengthen their reading skills. If you are interested in making a difference in the lives of our children, please contact Allison Valcho at 318-286-4386. 

Summer Day Camp

During the summer months, Common Ground has a summer day camp with educational and spiritual activities.    Last year, 36 children from the community joined us for fun, art, crafts, games and field trips.
