More Info:


On average, it costs about $50 per student, per year, to run a Released Time program.  These funds are used to cover the class materials and transportation costs.  Whether you wish to give a one-time gift, or to become a monthly giver, click the link below to invest in the lives of public school students with Released Time classes.



Volunteers are the backbone of our program.  Each location requires at least one teacher and one helper, and additional volunteers and roles are added as the number of students increases.  Whether you like to teach, listen to students recite verses, help with record keeping, or just provide a smiling face, apply below to take your first step.



Prayer is a vital component of each Released Time class.  By signing up below, we will connect you with a student or volunteer that you can pray for throughout the year.  Student names must be abbreviated for privacy, but each will be an enrolled student at one of our programs.



As a Contributor, your church or organization can connect with an existing CBM program to provide any of the following:  finances, volunteers, a meeting location or transportation.  This option works well for churches or groups who wish to be involved, but don’t want to take on the liability or manage the details.  Click here to find out more.



As a Coordinator, your church or organization provides leadership of a CBM Released Time program.  Under this option, you have some more flexibility in the way the program is operated and typically would provide volunteers and a meeting location.  CBM provides liability insurance, background checks, program branding, and offers its curriculum (or may approve curriculum of your choosing).  Connect with us to find out more about this option.



As a Champion, your church or organization takes full ownership and operates its own program.  CBM provides free up-front consultation and assists with on-boarding your program into a new school.  Under this option, liability insurance and CBM branding are not provided.  Follow the link below to connect with us and see if this option is right for your organization.
