About

The Refugee & Immigrant Children's Program is seeking volunteer tutors in the Auburn area! Spanish speakers preferred, but not a requirement. Please contact msaetern@lcsnw.org if you're interested in volunteering! More information below:

The Refugee and Immigrant Children's Program serves refugee and immigrant youth who are resettling alone in the United States. They have left behind war, persecution or instability that separated them from their families. Through our program, children are welcomed by foster families who have made a long-term commitment to their care. We serve children, primarily teenagers, from countries throughout Asia, Africa and Central America.

We are seeking volunteers interested in tutoring refugee and immigrant youth, the majority of whom are in high school working towards their diplomas. Aside from the challenges that come with high school for many students, these students are entering US school systems for the first time and are usually trying to gain English language skills. It is very important for our youth to have tutors and educational supports to encourage them through this time. Volunteers who speak another language, have experience living cross-culturally, or have worked with youth of color are encouraged to apply.

Currently, there is an immigrant youth in Auburn needing a tutor with improving English language skills and 11th-12th grade high school subjects.

We ask tutors to commit to at least one year of service meeting weekly with youth. Tutors also must be at least 21 years old or older and pass a background check.
