Brinkley Heights Urban Academy at 3275 Rosamond Ave, 38122
BHA has 2 opportunities for our congregation.
1)Tutors (during & after school): We have opportunities for volunteers to come into our school during the regular school day to tutor individual students in math and reading. We also have evening opportunities through our Monday night tutoring ministry
2)Room Sponsors: We would love to find a "room sponsor" for each of our classes. This would be an opportunity for individuals, Sunday School classes, or small groups to directly communicate with one of our teachers concerning needs for his/her class and students. The room sponsor would be able to visit and help out in their class, pray for the teacher and students, help gather needed materials, etc.For more information about volunteer opportunities at Brinkley Heights Urban Academy please contact Kacie Gallman at 901-324-3022 or .
