Grace in Action usa (GiA) has been awarded a second grant from the July Kosciusko REMC (KREMC) Round-Up Fund, according to Gladys Deloe, founder and president of GiA. The $2,000 award will be used to help with Fall and Winter Discovery Club, an after-school club for students from Jefferson Elementary School in Winona Lake, Ind.
The sessions will cover life skill training, including: personal care, learning about love, being a kid with character, dollars and sense, and my personality and potential. The program will be directed by Patti Miller, a Grace College junior from Ohio, who also assisted with the pilot program at Jefferson School in the winter of 2009.
GiA, which is a cooperating organization in the Fellowship of Grace Brethren Churches, also has given assistance to an after school program in Jackson, Ky., where volunteer teachers train teens who then tutor younger children how to develop basic life skills.
