Volunteer Tutor Opportunity Assisting ELL Immigrant Students
In collaboration with Seattle World School and Harvard Alumni for Education, we invite you to join us virtually to learn how you can make a positive change in the world, our community, and an immigrant student's life.
Seattle World School, a public middle and high school for low-income immigrant and refugee children and teens, is currently seeking volunteers to tutor students or assist in classrooms. The students are ELL, English Language Learners, from all over the world, and SWS is one of the Seattle Public Schools in the Central District.
SWS students face additional barriers to success: over 96% of students are low-income, all are English language learners, and nearly 30% experience homelessness.
No experience with tutoring or knowledge of another language is necessary, and the time commitment is low - an hour or two a week starting this fall with a flexible schedule.
