You will be provided with a schedule to help transition you into a routine while you are here. The schedule is to help make the most of your time as well as provide structure. While there is flexibility in your schedule we ask that you would help us to keep the kids schedule on track as much as possible.

Dormitory Assignment
Kingsford will you to oversee one of the children’s dormitories. During the week it is your responsibility to make sure that the children keep the dorm picked up, that their belongings stay as organized as much as possible and that all the kids are in their dorms at bedtime. On the weekends it is the responsibility of all volunteers to oversee the deep cleaning of the dorms their chores and the completion of their laundry. You will give a score to each dormitory as well as write comments about each child’s behavior and attitude. It is imperative that volunteers do not travel on the weekends, because the awards given to the children during Saturday night entertainment are based off of the scores given by volunteers and kingsford.

While you have flexibility in your schedule we do ask that prep be a “mandatory” activity for all the volunteers and children. We understand that things come up but Prep needs to be a high priority. It is a time to work on homework gives one on one tutoring and work.
