ORGANIZATION: Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO)


The Refugee and Immigrant Student Empowerment (RISE) program is an educational enrichment
program for recently arrived refugee and immigrant students in grades 9-12. RISE is delivered as a drop-in program that provides tutoring services to an average of 10-25 students a day. RISE aims to develop
the academic skills and confidence to support the success of these students in American educational
systems through tutoring, conversational activities, art-based activities, field trips and family nights.

RISE volunteers act as tutors, mentors and group facilitators. They provide academic support and
assistance, facilitate activities and games (when needed) and help students practice English and build
community. RISE places a large emphasis on community building and as a result, we are looking for
volunteers who are compassionate, hardworking, possess a good sense of humor and can adapt to
various situations and learning needs. Volunteers can also participate in family engagement events and
field trips.
