Access Ministries Volunteers Needed

It is our desire for Wilshire Avenue to be a welcoming and accessible place for all kids. We believe everyone is a child of God – kids with special needs, kids affected by foster care or adoption, or kids in any sort of special circumstances. Volunteers are needed to rotate every other week as classroom support or as one-on-one buddy for kids with special needs during Sunday School. Contact Alicia McCormick at alicia.m.mccormick@biola.edu or (714) 308-1351 to volunteer or for more information.
