About

For non-English speaking parents in West Seattle there are significant barriers keeping them from engaging with their children. Youth enrolled in Seattle Public Schools tend to speak better English than their parents, yet need help with homework, as well as assistance in navigating the school system. Immigrant parents of youth enrolled in Seattle Public Schools may also lack reliable language skills in communicating with teachers. These barriers manifest in ways that ultimately keep parents from fully accessing their children's experience at school, with peers, decision making, and other crucial devleopmental stages in which parents need to be invested. This volunteer role would be working directly with parents in this community to improve their English skills.
