The Nest Academy

  • 9 people are interested

We have a need for volunteer tutors/aides in person at our Academy between 10:20 am and 11:20 am.

We have an awesome opportunity to work with some amazing kids from around the world as they learn phonics and work on reading skills. We need a volunteer to come in and help mentor and guide these students in learning the English language. We are a nonprofit academy dedicated to serving the at risk, refugee, and immigrant population in the Charlotte area. We educate, empower and enrich our students with a tuition free, holistic education addressing the whole child: educationally, nutritionally, emotionally, socially and experientially . If you are available mornings to help a few days a week we would love to meet you! We are located in East Charlotte.

Volunteers must have previous teaching or tutoring experience in ESL and be 18 or older to volunteer.

If you are interested, please let us know some available times to meet via Zoom first, which days you can volunteer, and please know we practice all COVID precautions and distancing.
