Central Park Station is a center in Provo for volunteers to provide enrichment activities for children of low-income families. We support children in their learning endeavors with homework, crafts, team-building, and other creative activities. Volunteers will engage with children in reading, math, art, sports, and more!

 

We meet at Central Park Station (550 S 400 W, Provo) every Thursday from 3:30-5:00 PM.

"Serving at Central Park Station has become something that I look forward to every week! Helping kids with homework, playing games with them, and interacting with my friends from BYU is a refreshing and inspiring experience!"

- Patricia Miller

 

" Central Park Station has been such a rewarding and fun experience! Helping the kids with both school work and fun activities has helped me build strong relationships with them and has given them valuable learning opportunities outside of school. It’s a super fun project!"

- Aidan Omdahl

 

At first, I was apprehensive about being a part of Central Park Station. I wouldn't consider myself someone who is great with kids. But after just a few hours at Central Park Station, I have come to adore the children we help out and have become best friends with them! A few of them convinced their mom to let them come visit me while I'm at work. Playing games with the kids has become a highlight of my week and is a great stress relieving activity! I love those kids.
