During the school year, we host youth programs at the New American Center from 3-5 pm. In addition to coordinating fun activities such as arts and science projects, games, and reading we provide one-on-one homework assistance and tutoring. Many of our students are newly arrived and are still learning English. These students need extra attention so that they will not fall behind in school. Prior experience working with youth, tutoring, and/or in teaching ESL is strongly preferred but not required, as we can provide some support and training for dedicated individuals. We ask that volunteers in the youth program commit to at least one day a week during youth program hours (Monday through Thursday, 3-5pm).
