Light a Fire Student Advocacy Program Events in December

Kiawah Cares launched it’s Light a Fire Student Advocacy program with St John’s High School on Nov. 14 with 25 volunteers connecting with students. This program offers many opportunities to connect with teens, from one-time to ongoing.

Saturday, Dec. 16 from 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.
Volunteers are needed to help students prepare for fall final exams in all subject areas.  Volunteers will be stationed with a specific teacher in a subject of their choosing. For logistical reasons, SJHS cannot provide advanced reading material, however, this is not required as volunteers will assist students with previous assignments they had difficulty with, help them with make up assignments, and confer with the teacher. The subjects are Algebra I and II, Geometry, World Geography, Psychology, Biology, Earth Science, Chemistry, Spanish, English 1 – 4, US Gov and Econ, Us History, and general business courses. If you are interested in volunteering, contact

Thursday, Dec. 21 from 9 – 10:20 a.m.
KC is seeking career advocates and volunteers interested in representing their career fields for an upcoming Light a Fire event. It’s a small, brief program, but another step toward cementing in the students’ minds that there are many ways to be successful, and that the community cares.
