FHG, Incorporated provides opportunities for leadership
and service through several positions in the organization:
Program and Project Leaders
Community Support Leaders
Community Advisory Leaders
Executive Board Leadership
College Student Volunteers
Positions in FHG, Inc. are volunteer but require commitment
and consistency for the programs to operate smoothly.
Service Learning- Receive college course credit by volunteering through the University of Missouri’s Service Learning Program as a tutor and/or mentor for Grade A! students. Service Learners work as part of a leadership team that best suits their major to gain real-world experience in fields such as marketing, data, nutrition, and program development.
Leadership Development Program- After one semester with For His Glory, Inc., volunteers can then apply to serve as a program or project leader. As a program leader, you would be in charge of one of the leadership teams and responsible for everyone within your team. Use your creativity and talents to develop and implement activities and learning strategies for the students in your interest area. After 2 semesters as a program leader, students become eligible for the Hero Award which is presented in their final semester of graduation.
Opportunities also exist to serve as a project leader, which is a one semester responsibility and does not entail management responsibility for any teams or members.
College Student Volunteers- Students from sororities, fraternities, student organizations, and individual students can also become involved with youth and their families by volunteering as a group or an individual, for skill development (tutoring) or for a special presentation. Contact us early for scheduling and special events.
Our community volunteers come from all walks of life to help within each program of For His Glory, Inc. Whether it's managing behavior of tutees, helping with cooking, giving presentations or
simply lending a helping hand, these volunteers become the bridge between our students and the surrounding community. Acting as role models, our community volunteers demonstrate to our students how to live as positive members of society.
Community volunteers are particularly helpful in the months of May to June when we operate our eight-week summer session and with fundraising. Fundraising support can include, but is not limited to, car washes, bake sales, sponsorships, and/or donations.
