Common Good

Working together for the common good in North Lexington.

Our Mission at Common Good exists to advance wholistic community development in North Lexington through leadership, education, recreation, and spiritual formation. Common Good's Vision is for our community to live up to its God-given potential evidenced by thriving children with strong families in flourishing neighborhoods. Our desire is that community members be reconciled to God and each other.

after-school program

Common Good's After School Program serves grades K-12 and is open from 2:30 PM to 6:00 PM, Monday - Thursday during the school year. Students and families decide to participate in the program for a variety of reasons: to receive a nutritious meal, a safe place to be during after-school hours, increased accountability in completing homework and making good grades, to form positive bonds with adult mentor, and to hangout with peers in a supervised environment.

There are fifty spots for students in our program in which Common Good targets three Lexington neighborhoods: North Limestone, Castlewood and East End. We rely heavily on 45 weekly volunteer mentors. Mentors commit to volunteering one day a week for the school semester. They tutor, encourage, challenge, and build relationships with students.

It is easier to build strong children than to repair broken men.
