Refugee Transitions is looking for committed and culturally sensitive volunteers to become Tutors. Tutors provide support to refugee and immigrant 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 meet with their student in the comfort of the student's own home, helping them 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 home-based tutoring and mentoring.
