About

Refugee Transitions is looking for committed and culturally sensitive volunteers to become Tutors for refugee, immigrant, and asylee newcomers. Tutors provide support to newcomer families and play a critical role in helping the agency service its mission. Volunteering with Refugee Transitions is a great way to help your community and have a real impact on the lives of others. As a Tutor, you have the option of working with clients in either our adult or youth program. ESL Civics Education and Orientation Program: This program provides adult clients with home-based ESL instruction and civics education. Tutors help adult students acquire the language and literacy skills needed to engage more actively in their communities, and to access important civic institutions and public resources. Bridge 2-Success Youth Development Program: This program provides immigrant and refugee youth with the support they need to succeed academically, develop career readiness skills, form healthy attachments, and maintain supportive relationships with adults and peers. We match Tutors with refugee youth aged 6-18 for one-on-one tutoring and mentoring. Please find information about schedules, time commitment, all volunteer requirements, and more here: www.reftrans.org/apply. If you have additional questions, please visit our website at www.reftrans.org or feel free to give us a call at 415-989-2151. Thank you for your interest in supporting refugee and immigrant families. We look forward to hearing from you!
