Virtual Refugee Tutor for (Adult Education - Female)
*Seeking female tutors*
Keeping Our Promise is a small group of volunteers dedicated to helping Afghan refugees who have served alongside US military forces resettle here in the Bay Area. These people are on Special Immigrant Visas (SIVs) which allow them to come to the US when their lives are threatened because of their work with US or NATO or western governments.
As part of the Afghan Coalition, our missions is to help these brave men and women and their families feel at home after they have fled Afghanistan due to these threats.
A particular hardship for newly arrived families is an adjustment economy and education system. Many families need dual incomes, and in particular, adult female members of the family struggle to adjust on how to find work and opportunity in the United States.
As a virtual tutor, you would be paired up with a family, set a schedule, and meet with adult members via video conferencing to evaluate their educational context, assess what resources would be needed to help the person, and do your best to be their advocate and tutor.
This is a tough, but rewarding position. If you want to make a difference in someone's life, there's no better way than to start with tutoring.
No additional volunteer opportunities at this time.
