MISSION & PURPOSE

ADJUSTING to life in school can be quite a challenge. Even the best student struggle throughout these
years of change. Students with academic challenges can find their journey through school completely
overwhelming. The mission of the After School Tutoring Program (ASTP) at New Rising Star
Missionary Baptist Church is to help students succeed in school providing a free, supervised, and
tutoring program for struggling students in our community. In order to accomplish our mission, we
recruit and train volunteers to assist participating students with homework completion that will enable
them to improve their grades, become better learners and ultimately raise their self‐esteem.

ASTP is a program offered without regard to race, color, religion, gender, or national origin. The entire
program is to be consistent with and considered part of the overall Christian mission of New Rising Star
Missionary Baptist Church. Students who are not members of the congregation will not be coerced to
join our congregation. However, they and their families are welcome to join any activities of our
congregation’s life and mission.
