Centro Romero is a community-based organization serving the refuge and immigrant population in northeast Chicago. Rooted in the deep commitment to social justice exemplified by the eponymous Saint Oscar Romero, we seek to improve the lives and livelihoods of the communities we serve in a number of ways, including through adult education. We are seeking 2 to 3 volunteers to teach ESL classes two days a week for the month of July. All teaching is 100% remote until Illinois enters phase 5, however, our grant requires that all our volunteers be Illinois residents. This is an ideal opportunity for retired individuals looking to make a difference or anyone with a passion for education and a drive to make the world a better place. This is also a great opportunity for anyone looking to avoid a gap in their employment history while on furlough due to Covid-19. And not only is it a great resume builder, but you will be working with some fantastic students and really teaching them things that will make a visible difference in the quality of their lives. If you are interested, please email email@example.com for more information.
Helping the immigrant and refugee community achieve self-sufficiency for more than 30 years. Through education, Centro Romero emphasizes the development of the whole family unit, the creation of community leadership and self-reliance.
Centro Romero has been a community-based organization that serves the refugee immigrant population on the northeast side of Chicago. Our interrelated programs include the Youth Learning and Leadership Program, Family Services (encapsulating the Domestic Violence Prevention Program, the Public Benefits Program, and the New Americans Initiative), Adult Education, and Legal Services. These are essential services that support healthy personal and social development of participants. Our long-term organizational goal is to bridge a disenfranchised community of immigrants and refugees into mainstream American society as well as improving their opportunity for upward social mobility. Long-term sustainable growth of our target population will only be achieved through education, leadership development, advocacy, and service; we accordingly focus our energy on these related initiatives.
