Programs
 
Individualized Student Support

Our support volunteers give students access to a trusted adult who can provide one-on-one mentoring, academic support, encouragement, and organizational coaching. Students and their Support Volunteers meet in person here at the church, conveniently located just a block from the Littleton High School and are fully supervised.

We provide between 2 and 4 weekly Student Support sessions monthly per student. Sessions run between thirty and forty-five minutes long, and vary in frequency according to the needs of the student, and the availability of the Volunteer. 

If you or your teen are interested in this program, please fill out this inquiry form, or call the church at

603-444-3414 and leave a message for Rev. Kathy. We'll get back to you with more information, and answer any questions you may have. We look forward to hearing from you! 

If you are a parishioner at All Saints' or a nearby parish and are interested in volunteering, check out this video for more information. If you would like to volunteer or are interested in hearing more, please reach out to
