Tutoring Students with assigned homework, special projects and other educational needs are welcome to receive one-on-one help or to work in a small group with a tutor. A key goal of this area is to support English language acquisition and literacy development for English Language Learners. (ELL) We currently run this program at two sites:
Youth Groups: The Youth Groups are intended to lead discussions and reflections to understand the American culture, diversity and school system. Topics may include attendance, hygiene, nutrition, violence, drugs, identity, urban education, appropriate use of technology, study skills, post secondary education, etc. The Youth Groups are also designed to provide the students with opportunities to communicate their concerns and progress surrounding their migration and resettlement in America and to further develop their skills.
Extra Curricular Activities: Through extra curricular activities the youth can get to explore their physical, creative, social, and career interests. They encourage full participation and involvement in school life.
