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 community impact.

LivingWorks AfterSchool offers one-on-one tutoring after school to students in grades 1 through 8 from Joyce Kilmer Elementary School and also some students from area high schools. After tutoring, the following mentoring options are offered:

  • Students in grades 1 through 5 may participate in extra-curricular activities such as art, international cooking, science activities, games and sportsmanship, and SEL (social emotional learning) activities.
  • 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.
  • High school students are offered opportunities for assistance with employment opportunities and the college application process.


MusicWorks offers affordable music lessons and classes. These are available to anyone, but particular attention is given to the local immigrant and refugee community, with the goal of applying developing skills to the music of their culture.
