The Mission of LivingWorks After School Program

Our Mission is to develop the whole person, cultivating within each of its students a desire to learn, and equipping them through mentoring, one-on-one teaching, and play.


In 2010, after operating as a program of Living Water Community Church for a number of years, LivingWorks became a distinct nonprofit in order to expand the potential for development and community impact.

We currently offer the following:

The After School Program: Students in grades 1 through 8 from Joyce Kilmer Elementary School engage in four days of one-on-one tutoring after school. After tutoring, the following options are offered:

  • Students in grades 1 through 5 may participate in extra-curricular activities such as art, international cooking, science activities, and “Compass” (Bible-based character development).
  • Students in grades 6 through 8 may take part in group and one-on-one mentoring. Topics are designed to teach various life skills and to prepare the students for high school and beyond.

In-class Assistance at Joyce Kilmer Elementary School: LivingWorks places tutors in classrooms to assist teachers in providing differentiated instruction to at least 110 students during the school day. This program increases collaboration between Kilmer teachers and the LivingWorks staff and increases tutors’ understanding of student needs and school instructional methods.
