GUM Youth is an after-school mentoring program for students 5th grade through college. Our goal is to raise the next generation of leaders by showing every student the love Christ! Through mentoring, education, and fellowship, we equip our students to not just survive but to thrive as the children of God they are!
Our Junior High students (5th-8th Grade) meet Tuesday-Wednesday from 4:00pm-6:30pm at the GUM Church (3818 Ball St. Galveston, Texas). Here, our junior high-ers not only get to hang out in a safe and fun environment after school with awesome volunteers but they also get to go on fun field trips and engage with the community by doing meaningful service projects!
On Monday nights from 6:30pm-8:30pm, our High School students (9th-12th Grade) gather to play basketball, learn about Jesus, and eat a lot of food. We work hard to keep our students on their toes with fun group games and skits while also engaging them with the gospel!
Is your student struggling in school? Does your student just need a little extra support? We want to help! We provide tutoring for any students who just need some additional assistance.
Figuring out next steps after high school can be really difficult. We support our students with SAT Prep, filling out college applications, figuring out a degree plan and anything else they need to take that next step!
Youth Art Collective (YAC)
The YAC is designed to empower students through art. Students attend workshops, build portfolios and even put on an art show at the end of the semester. To see highlights from the past YAC Art Shows click here
Having a caring adult can make all the difference in the lives of our students. We build lasting relationships with our students by meeting on-on-one and giving them space to talk about life, Jesus, and eat ice cream
