YALLA San Diego is a non-profit located in El Cajon, CA that uses soccer and academic programs to motivate refugee youth to transcend the social and economic barriers that inhibit their success. Through after-school tutoring programs, YALLA helps these children whose families have fled war improve their grades, learn English, and eventually achieve a college education.
YALLA currently seeks qualified individuals to act as tutors to help our K-8 and high-school level students complete homework in various subjects, but to also teach English, science, and math through our adaptive curriculum which we design for our students to augment their understanding of subject matter. Volunteers will work one-on-one with students to help them through lessons as well as homework, under the supervision of our Academy staff. Successful completion of background check and one mandatory training session required.
