NEST Summer Lunch, Learn and Play Program

During the summer months, NEST serves and supports its mission by sponsoring a weekday Lunch, Learn and Play Program.  A free lunch is supplied, camp games, crafts and sports are facilitated, and grade level skill retention activities are provided in which the students can engage.  The program is run in two of the same neighborhoods NEST serves throughout the school year.

Adults as well as rising High School students and supervised rising Middle School students are needed to help make this summer program happen.  If you have a younger child you’d like to have volunteer with you, please contact NEST at 513.781.1238.

The Summer program runs from 12:30pm to 2:30pm Tuesday through Thursday beginning June 8th and ending on July 29th. There are many groups signed up throughout the summer, but we need individuals to fill in the gaps. 

Adults as well as high-school students are needed for shifts of 2 hours each for homework help and tutoring.  You may work multiple shifts if you are able. We welcome volunteers who can commit to a regular time each week! Student volunteers can earn service hours for their time. If your schedule doesn’t allow for a weekly commitment, please sign up any day you can help.
