Many faith communities partner with schools to provide tutoring, safe havens, after-school programs, mentoring, and summer activities; they also inspire their membership to volunteer on behalf of children, youth, and families in the nation's schools. This booklet describes several faith community initiatives in a variety of areas that support children's learning. These areas are: after-school programs, school safety, college planning, and reading. The booklet also lists guidelines for public school/faith community partnerships and reminders for volunteers to consider. (HTH)
