About

The Refugee & Immigrant Children's Program is seeking volunteer tutors in the Tukwila area! Please contact msaetern@lcsnw.org if you're interested in volunteering! Volunteers must be 21 and older. 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 tutors in Tukwila to help a refugee youth with science, math, SAT prep, and general study skills.

  • Help youth with high school homework in various subjects
  • Help youth practice reading, writing, and speaking English
  • Assist with Senior Projects, essay writing, and college or scholarship applications
