For 35 years, Canal Alliance has been a nonprofit champion of immigrants who are challenged by a lack of resources and an unfamiliar environment. We believe that everyone has the right to achieve their dreams. Every day, Canal Alliance educates, empowers and supports motivated immigrants to best meet their unique needs - from putting food on the table to becoming American citizens to gaining critical English language skills and graduating from college. Because when we support immigrants, Marin becomes a place where everyone can live, work and succeed. Each year, Canal Alliance collaborates with over 40 agencies and engages 500 volunteers to impact more than 4,000 youth, adults and families.
Objective By providing homework support to students, volunteers will contribute to the UP! goal of 100% of our students graduating from a 4-year university.
