Be a mentor for refugee students at the Indian Creeks Elementary School in Clarkston. This year, the program will occur every Monday- Thursday from 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM. There are 25 students with varying English capacities. Our goals for the refugee students are to educate them about the American school system, work on social development, help them with their language capacities, and build their positive characteristics. We really would like to help the refugee students get the most out of our time with them but we can only do so if the students have more attention from great people like you!
The program will start in October and it will run through the end of the school year in May. If you’re able to even commit to one day a week from 2:30-4:30, that would help us out tremendously. During this time, you’ll be able to meet the refugee students, learn about all of our students’ cultures, and most importantly, you would be leaving an impact on the children for years to come.
All volunteers must go through a background screening process and must attend an orientation and training session.
