A group of children from the neighborhood had been learning about teamwork, rules, honesty and sportsmanship through the game of soccer, thanks to the husband and wife team of Greg and Lisa Herring. Starting in February 2014, the children also began benefiting from Path To Shine's after-school program. If you would like to volunteer by tutoring, providing snacks or other supplies please contact Lisa Herring from St. Thomas Episcopal Church.
Many children have limited access to books. New books are considered treasures to our children. Please help us spread the love of reading and provide a few new books to a program participant. Visit our donation page by clicking here.
Thanks to the leadership of Mentors at Path To Shine - Columbus, our children are well on their way to becoming successful gardeners. Each child received pots, soil, and tomato plants with instructions. Gardening is a great thing to teach children while school is not in session. As a result of gardening, children learn how to grow things, follow instructions, and commit to a daily routine. Being outside and breaking from screen time and being indoors is good for our children. Enjoy the happy faces of our children at Path To Shine - Columbus.
Last year it was tomato plants, and this year it's strawberries! Thanks to our mentors, the children at Path To Shine - Columbus are getting first hand experiences at gardening.
Gardens are great places to cultivate meaningful and fun learning experiences for children. Gardening offers children the opportunity to learn about natural science as well as responsibility, caretaking, independence, and environmental awareness.
