cgm leadership program

The CGM Leadership Program is an after-school development program designed to provide a curriculum centered on creating leaders out of our students as well as to provide a safe haven for them. We serve students in the Washington Park, Gibbs Village, and Western Hills communities. Our goal is to enrich their lives as they become Christ-centered young leaders and transform the cultural norms in these communities.

We focus in three areas to help develop students to be future leaders: academic, social, and spiritual growth.


FALL 2017

Volunteer: Bible Study leaders to commit to Wednesday's from 4:50-5:45 PM. Tutors needed Monday-Thursday 4:00-5:00 PM, and 5:00-5:45 PM on Mondays, Tuesdays, and Thursdays .

SPRING 2018 & SUMMER 2018

Volunteer: Check back later.

If you would like to help us out in any of these areas, please contact Sheree Burns by using the CONTACT FORM or call our main office at 334.593.5803.
