Tutor Spanish-speaking Teen Girls at Refugee Group Home
We are looking for female, Spanish-speaking volunteers who are willing to tutor in-person at one of Bethany's group homes for our refugee teenage girls. Volunteers must be at least 21 and willing to commit to a minimum of 6 months of tutoring. Tutors work with their student for one, 1-hour session every week. Most of the refugee youth at this group home are between the ages of 16-18 and in ESL classes at their local public school. Tutoring sessions primarily focus on homework help or other schoolwork.
About Bethany Christian Services
1050 36th St. SE, Suite 400, Grand Rapids, MI 49508, US
Bethany demonstrates the love and compassion of Jesus Christ by protecting children, empowering youth, and strengthening families through quality social services.
For refugees fleeing danger, the search for safety can be extremely challenging. And too often, people become numbers in a system that can feel impossible to navigate. That’s why we guide, protect, advocate for, and support refugees. In the U.S., we offer resettlement and continued support services in strategic locations.
Bethany Christian Services' Refugee and Immigrant Services program encompasses adult and family resettlement as well as refugee foster care for Unaccompanied Children and Unaccompanied Refugee Minors. Our services for unaccompanied refugee youth include case management, counseling, housing (foster homes, group homes, independent living), classes (New Arrival, Life Skills, driver's training), and volunteer mentoring and tutoring.
