Be a Champion of BLAST!


1.  Sponsor a child

  • Scholarship a child for all or part of the school year. The annual cost is divided into 10 monthly payments (click here for rates).  On average, 25% of our families cannot afford our reduced fees.
  • Pray for a child throughout the school year. (Click here for prayer points.)

2.  Volunteer

As a volunteer, you contribute more than just your time.  Your wisdom, your sense of humor, your positive attitude and role modeling all bring a richer experience to our children. (click here for application)

3.  Donate Goods or Merchandise

We appreciate all “healthy snack items”.   We also appreciate…donations of school supplies.  Please contact Melanie Beckstrom for a list of what’s currently needed.

4.  Join us in one of our many events (Click here for events)
