Empower The Next Generation

The next generation is our future. We aim to provide the opportunity for them to build their faith, character, and confidence; acquire skills and achieve academic success; learn leadership and become more engaged citizens. The rising living costs in the Bay Area are putting an unprecedented strain on local schools and families in low-income communities. There’s also a growing deficit in foster homes, so children are not getting placed as quickly in a home to get the care and support they need. In our community, we have an opportunity to build up young men and women to become future leaders, confident in their faith and image, and can also build up others.


Join CPC’s efforts to equip low-income schools and empower the next generation of students to reach their full potential.


CPC has adopted this school in San Mateo and has been faithfully establishing a solid relationship of service and care to the students, faculty, and community. Most of the students at this school are on food assistance, so serving the teachers helps encourage them in their efforts to love these students well. LEAD Elementary is a TK-5 Magnet School of Literacy, Emotional/Social Learning and Enrichment, Academics, and Digital Arts Integration Themed School serving a low-income community.



Make a difference in the lives of children and teachers through more attention/time per student. Serving a low-income community, LEAD Elementary lacks volunteer parents and outside helpers to assist teachers and students in classrooms and as lunch monitors.


When: One or more hours 8 am to noon on Mon, Tue, Thur, or Friday

Where: LEAD Elementary, 949 Ocean View Avenue, San Mateo, CA, 94401

Participant Minimum age: Adult


NOTE: The school district requires established volunteers who work with students in the classroom to have a LiveScan clearance, which is an electronic fingerprint scan that can be done at UPS. You can get the approximately $70 cost reimbursed by CPC as long as you volunteer to help for a least two classes.
