This program pairs individual refugee youth in Jefferson County Public Schools with a volunteer tutor. The tutor meets with his or her middle or high school student once a week to practice English, to work on challenging academic subjects, and to provide friendly support and positive feedback. The tutor is also invited to accompany his or her student on monthly field trips to educational sites, such as the Louisville Science Center and the Louisville Zoo, on weekends. Commitment is at least 1 hour /week for six months. Volunteers in high school are encouraged to join this program but must have a parent or guardian present when mentoring. This opportunity requires volunteers to be 16 years of age or older, enjoy working with kids, able to get to the meetings, and experience in educating youth.
