The Somali Youth & Family club supports refugee and immigrant families in King County by providing a number of free resources including afterschool tutoring and homework support.
Many of our students come from non-English speaking households so our program offers homework support that many of their families are unable to offer due to language barriers. Our program not only works with students on homework but through games and activities, helps students strengthen their math and reading skills.
Our afterschool tutoring center at Pine Ridge Apartments runs Tuesday and Thursdays from 4-6pm. We are especially looking for volunteers who can commit to 2 hours at least one day per week consistently through the school year. We are also seeking flexible substitute tutors who can come on an as needed basis. Applications to be a tutor are accepted throughout the year. Training and support will be provided. The program is generally closed during school holidays.
- Tutoring: Patience and a positive, friendly attitude are a must. Group tutoring will focus on either Reading or Mathematics instruction at the elementary or lower middle-school levels.
