CRB’s Youth Program in Kent supports newly arrived refugee youth seeking additional academic assistance and soft skill development outside of the classroom. The In-Home Tutoring Project identifies school-aged refugee youth struggling with their coursework and matches them with In-Home Tutors who can help them achieve their educational goals.
POSITION SUMMARY: In-Home Tutors provide individualized tutoring services to school-aged (K-12) refugee youth in Kent. Tutoring sessions focus on building students’ academic skills and proficiency in English. In-Home Tutors of younger students may need to prepare short exercises to target specific academic skills (resources and materials will be provided by CRB). Tutors and students meet at least once a week at the student’s home or a local library. Each tutoring session consists of a minimum of two hours of instruction per week, but the specific schedule is determined by the tutor and the student’s family. In-Home Tutors will be expected to make at least a 6 month commitment.
BENEFITS: Gain valuable experience working with refugee and immigrant youth. Positively impact the life and academic success of a young person. Earn Service Learning Credits. Professional development and training opportunities available.
