Are you looking for a great way to give back to the community? Are you interested in partnering with immigrant high school students in the Cambridge/Somerville community? Consider becoming a mentor or tutor with us!

For many immigrant youth, there are many challenges in building a strong foundation in a new country. Enroot supports these students by assisting with academic tutoring , mentoring , leadership development , college prep , English practice while uplifting and empowering immigrant youth voices.

You, as a volunteer, are pivotal in building this foundation and allowing our students to maximize their potential!

We are specifically looking for mentors who live in the Cambridge, Somerville, and Boston area, are currently in their junior/senior year of college, recent grads, working professionals, anyone 18 or older, and can speak one (or more!) of the following languages: Spanish , Haitian Creole , Bengali , Amharic , Portuguese , or Hindi .

Description

For the last 26 years, Enroot has supported low-income immigrant students at Cambridge Rindge and Latin School set ambitious life goals and achieve them. The program has recently expanded to include students at Somerville High School. The program’s holistic wrap-around model includes 1-1 tutoring, 1-1 mentoring, paid internships, leadership seminars, and community service.
