Volunteer as a Tutor !

cca1 downloadVolunteers Needed to Tutor Refugee Children

Did you spend countless hours asking your parents to explain a question or a problem you were having when you were a student? Many refugee students have parents who are trying to learn English themselves, so it is difficult to assist and help with their child’s schoolwork. Make a difference in the life of a newly arrived refugee family by volunteering to tutor. Tutors will work in small groups of refugee students (2-3) to help with homework, assist with studying and practice English. Empower families by giving 2 hours a week to support children who are adjusting and learning in a new country! Our tutoring sessions will be held at the Indian Creek Elementary in Clarkston beginning in Mid-October through the end of the school year in May, Monday through Thursday afternoons from 2:30pm to 4:30pm.  We seek a volunteer commitment of one afternoon each week.

Come learn about the program at an orientation September 19th, and stay for trainings if you feel this is a good opportunity for you.  Orientation at 2:00PM followed by trainings until 5:30PM.   Trainings will be held at Catholic Charities Atlanta’s Northlake Office:  2305 Parklake Drive, Ste. 150, Bldg. 9, Atlanta, GA   30345  RSVP to Grace Kim   404-452-0478 or gkim@catholicchartiesatlanta.org
