Proverbs 22:6 “Teach children how they should live, and they will remember it all their lives.”

Many children and youth struggle with schoolwork. This can lead to low test scores, dropping out of school, family conflict, fear of failure, low self-esteem and the inability to understand what they read in the Bible.  Tutoring Children and Youth (TCY) ministries are designed to share Christ with children and youth while helping them build academic skills needed for school success.

The 11-hour Tutoring Children & Youth Basic Workshop equips churches to begin ministries to help students succeed in school.  Local church volunteers are taught to help children with reading, writing and math.  They are also introduced to working with students new to the United States and Canada.

Most important, the TCY Basic Workshop equips local church volunteers to share God’s plan of salvation with children and youth using language the students understand.  Workshop participants learn to incorporate prayer and scripture into every lesson so that the students have the opportunity to learn about Jesus.  They practice giving their testimony as if they were talking to a child or teen.  They become aware of questions to ask when they believe a child is ready to receive Christ.
