If anyone is interested in making money over the summer working at the Virginia Beach Amphitheater as a volunteer for St. Matthew’s, there will be a limited number of spaces available in June for classes. You can use money earned from working to go towards your tuition, EF tours (Greece trip over Easter Break), Discovery, or Enrichment programs at SMS. This is a great way to earn a little towards your SMS fund, make some new friends, and have fun! If you would like to take the class or want more information please contact Amy Chesney at email@example.com
