During these uncertain times, how can we help?
See below to access our COVID-19 Resource Hub, and to explore our growing directory of both COVID-19-specific and virtual volunteering opportunities.
FUTURO is a mentoring program that supports and guides Latino high school students in their pursuit of higher education - most of them will be the first in their families to break the cycle of poverty and attend college. The program is open to first and second generation immigrants living in the City of Trenton that are in their Junior year of high school. The program mentors and tutors the students until HS graduation and follows up with an alumni network.
To ensure the students will be able to keep up their grades (and therefore qualify for financial aid to help pay for college), we require that they attend weekly tutoring. We currently need volunteers to assist with areas such as Math, Science and Physics. We also work to prepare the students for standardized testing such as the ACT and SAT.
Tutoring is on Wednesdays evenings, 5pm-7pm at LALDEF.

Our mission is to defend and promote civil rights, facilitate access to health care and education for low-income Latin American immigrants, and promote cross-cultural understanding throughout Mercer County.
LALDEF acts as a resource hub for the local immigrant community, helping dismantle the barriers that stand in the way to a more fair and just society, and supporting the incorporation of these immigrants to the social fabric. Our purpose is to support immigrants maintain their livelihoods, freedom and self sufficiency, facilitate their integration into their local communities, Consistent with our nation’s values and respect for human rights, we believe that helping immigrants obtain jobs, homes, and access to health care and education, and thus build better futures for themselves and their children, while continuing to strive, assimilate and be accepted into American society, will strengthen our nation. Ultimately, we serve the community at large by creating cross-cultural understanding between native and foreign-born, accepting and appreciating our differences, while recognizing our common humanity and mutual interest in contributing to a thriving, fair, diverse community.
We'll work with your schedule.
