Youth Academic Tutors help newcomer students build academic skills and confidence! The IRC’s Youth Program provides tutoring, mentoring, and parent support programming for students and their families. With guidance from IRC staff, volunteers work one-on-one with students in their homes for 1-2 hours per week to practice English language skills, assist with homework, and facilitate educational games and activities. Students and tutors will work together to develop academic skills, including reading, math and science. Tutors support learning through empowerment, positive engagement and providing expertise on school subjects.
Session will take place outside of public-school hours. No holiday or weekend commitment required. Tutors must be able to commit to at least 1 day/week. Academic tutoring programs run from January to June during the school year or July through late August for summer programs.
