what we do
Tutoring is specifically designed with our students in mind. By pairing students with adults, there is an immediate connection between this generation and the next. In the process, tutors become mentors and students become friends. With our 1:1 tutoring, each student receives the attention they need to achieve the next level of their education. Like all good relationships, this time can also address spiritual, relational, or emotional needs. For more information on this opportunity, follow this link for an inside look. Also, check out our tutoring opportunity with URBAN ACT Academy and our partnership forming with the administration at that school.
The 'express yourself' enrichment day camps provide a safe environment for children and youth to gain new skills in a specialty area, while simultaneously gaining confidence in the people God created them to be and finding ways to express their own creativity. Some of these camp interests include art, photography, cooking, gardening, music, performing arts, and creative writing. Each camp is unique. Our camps follow the IPS calendar and occur during school breaks. Follow LYN House on Facebook or subscribe to our newsletter to see when our camps are offered.
Partnership with NEIGHBORHOOD IPS SCHOOL
We support our neighborhood IPS school with bi-weekly tutoring on-site with first grade scholars. Although similar to LYN House tutoring, it takes place at the school as it is in session. When it comes to supporting our local students, it's all hands on deck. This amazing opportunity is open to any who are willing to be a part of the local community.
Second Saturday Breakfast
On the second Saturday of every month, different groups or churches volunteer to cook breakfast for the community. During this time, families and members of the neighborhood come in to enjoy genuine community and good food. Each Saturday is unique and brings with it a sense of belonging and thankfulness. If you would like to host a breakfast, please follow this link for more information on how you can be a part of this time.
LYN HOuse Basketball League
After the first year, LYN House Basketball has proven to be an exciting program for the community. It is a co-ed league that invites beginner and intermediate players, starting at age 4, to learn the game and enhance their skills. Each week, players are challenged to develop their skills and have the opportunity to hear about the Gospel as a team. LYN House partners with Woodruff Place Baptist Church and Indy First Church to make this happen.
YOuth employment program
In partnership with Indy Metro Church and Brookside Community Church, LYN House provides leadership development, job readiness and financial literacy training for teens. Each teen over the course of 8 weeks works at one of the partner sites to assist with everyday activities of the ministry. The classes and opportunity to work provides the teens with their first job experience and helps them connect with future employment.
