Mission Statement

Mentoring New Americans to succeed

Goals of the Program

  • To mobilize the gifts (books, time and the unlimited variety of talents) of caring individuals in the community.
  • To provide support and tutoring to new Americans as they work toward meeting educational, workplace and personal goals.

Description

Giving+Learning connects adult volunteer mentors to work one on one with an adult new American who is asking for help to practice English, study for their drivers permits, citizenship, GED and CNA (Certified Nursing Assistant) exams.

Thousands of refugees and new Americans are unable to attend Adult Basic Education classes due to lack of transportation or childcare. By having a mentor in their home they are able to achieve their goals and become integrated into the community.

Friendships form throughout a mentorship and barriers of discrimination and misunderstanding between cultures are broken down.
