Project Details

Seeking volunteers who can assist refugee families currently enrolled, or need to enroll in online English learning classes. Volunteer must be willing to go to the family's home in metro Detroit (most immediately Shelby Township, Sterling Heights, Oak Park) and help them navigate online registration and/or class environment. Ideally, the volunteer is available to make follow up visits to check on the refugee student's progress or provide some individualized tutoring. Female volunteers are especially needed.

Alternately, we could use transportation volunteers willing to commit to taking clients to a regularly scheduled, in-person English class. This need is URGENT, as a strict timeline requires us to refer these clients to ESL resources as a requirement to maintain eligibility for other assistance benefits.

Must be in the USA. Must be 18+ years old.
