Lutheran Family Services of Rocky Mountains: Denver Metro

  • 82 people are interested

Refugee children face a difficult task: having to go through the challenges of cultural adjustment while at the same time dealing with the daily pressures of school. Volunteers help elementary students keep up by participating in the after school tutoring program.

Other volunteers work with high school students to help them with homework and cultural adjustment. COVID-19 means we will likely use a hybrid model of some outdoor activities and some remote activities. The volunteer opportunity is especially important in addressing the additional challenges refugee youth face during the pandemic in missing school or struggling to attend school during remote instruction.
