“Sharing with low-income students and families of Pottstown Christ’s unique purpose for their lives by providing educational supports and mentoring relationships.”
More About Us
Project Purpose works with low-income students and families in Pottstown, PA. Our ministry began in 2011. We are a Christian, faith-based nonprofit. We work with some of the most at-risk students in our community.
Our largest program is our After-School Homework. Low-income, at-risk kindergarten through 12th grade students work one-on-one with a volunteer who helps each student with his or her homework. As volunteers work with students they building relationships that offer hope and joy in learning.
Our staff and volunteers also work to support parents as they engage in their children’s education. We believe that parents benefit through a support system that comes alongside them as they navigate their children’s schooling.
During the spring and summer, the children served by our non-profit participate in a community garden. The children help in the planting, growing, and harvesting of vegetables. They share the produce with their families! The children find joy in working in their garden and watching their produce grow.
High School students benefit from our Summer Scholars program. Summer Scholars is a 2 week long high-school credit recovery program for failing high school students. We offer a free alternative to the traditional summer school program. Through our program our students learn that they are capable of doing the academic work and stay on track to graduate.
Every program of Project Purpose is based on our mission that relationships change lives. We believe that the relationships our students have with our staff and volunteers bring them love, joy, hope!
A Project Purpose parent:
“I wanted to thank everyone again for Nadia’s opportunity to go to Camp. Can I just tell you she LOVED it and didn’t get homesick- not once. She said she was having too much fun with her new friends to even think about home. She’s never been away from us that long, but she just can’t stop talking about all of the wonderful things she did and learned. All of the staff there were WONDERFUL and full of joy. Nadia will never forget this experience. She got 11 awards and I could go on and on. We are forever grateful for every activity, big or small, Project Purpose has invited Nadia to be a part of. Thank you, thank you, thank you!”
