SATURDAYS

About

Community service is a vital component of the Girls Reaching All Concepts of Excellence Mentorship Program curriculum as it helps to build character and respect for humanity as well as promotes leadership and stewardship.

Service Saturdays are local service projects held on the 1st Saturday of the month offering a great way for GRACE mentees and mentors to create relationships with community members while working to enhance the city of Blytheville. Other students of Blytheville High School, as well as faculty and staff, are invited to participate also.

Service projects are coordinated by GRACE in collaboration with various community partners. Students meet on campus the morning of the service date at 10:00 AM and carpool to the service location with their assigned groups. Service will last until 3:00 PM or until the project is complete. If you have any questions, contact GRACE Program Director, Ashley Moore, at bhs@gracementorship.org.
