About

Refugees Northwest Foster Care (a program of Lutheran Community Services) 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.

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.

Refugees Northwest Foster Care is seeking a volunteer tutor in the Shoreline area! Please contact refugeesNWfostercare@lcsnw.org if you're interested in volunteering! The immigrant youth primarily needs help in middle to 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.

If you are interested in this opportunity, please send an email to refugeesNWfostercare@lcsnw.org.
