Through the New Beginnings Program, volunteers are paired with refugee children and youth, assisting in literacy attainment and homework help. They work with students to establish good study skills and support parental involvement in their child’s education. Volunteers introduce families to their new community through group discovery field trips. Commitment is at least 1 hour per week for 6 months. Volunteers in high school are encouraged to join this program but must have a parent or guardian present when mentoring. This opportunity requires volunteers to enjoy working with kids, be able to get to the meetings, and have experience in educating youth.
