About

We need enthusiastic volunteers to help with our Children's enrichment program held on Wed/Sat/Sundays at the YMCA in Wayne NJ. While their parents work on learning English in a nearby classroom, help us with activities for the children across the hall. Sometimes we help children with homework, other times we grab a book and read together to work on English pronunciation and vocabulary. Sometimes we draw, or play games like "Simon Says" or "Guess Who" to both keep moving and work on our spoken English.

Volunteers need not commit to all 3 sessions, but volunteers must commit to at least 4 hours per week. You do not need to be a trained teacher to help. Kindness, a sense of humor, a commitment to cultural understanding and exchange is a good place to start. After one session we will ask any volunteers with direct contact with children to complete a background check.
