After School Mentoring

Rooted is an afterschool program for at-risk children, grades 4-6, in the Conestoga Valley School District. Students are referred to the program by a school counselor. If approved by their parent/guardian, each student is then paired, one-on-one, with a mentor for the program year (September through May). Rooted offers a fun, healthy, and safe environment. 

Rooted meets every Tuesday at CVCCS and includes:

  • A healthy snack
  • An opportunity for each student to unwind from their day by talking to their mentor
  • Fun games
  • Bible study
  • Group activities that foster teamwork

Additionally, a family dinner is held 3 times during the year as a way for the families to get to know our mentors and staff.

Volunteer as a mentor for Rooted!


Weekend Blessings

CVCCS provides students in the Conestoga Valley School District on free and reduced-fee lunches with bundles of food to take home for the weekends.

The food bundles are prepared by our volunteers and include:

  • 2 Breakfasts
  • 2 Lunches
  • 2 Dinners
  • Snacks and drinks (if available).

Many of the children served by the program face food insecurity at home and often do not have an adult available to prepare meals for them. The food packed in the bundles are quick, individually sized items that can be easily prepared.

We are currently accepting donations.
