Volunteer Tutor
Volunteer tutors work with refugee students (grades K-12) who are attending public schools in Clackamas, Multnomah, and Washington counties and have lived in the U.S. less than one year. Volunteers will spend 1.5 – 2 hours per week with their students, usually in the students' homes, helping with English, homework, and learning about American culture. Volunteer training and support is provided. Help refugee youth, while learning about another culture and exploring your skills! For more information, please contact Faridah Haron, 503-731-9521.
