VOLUNTEER AND MAKE A DIFFERENCE IN THE LIFE OF A PROMISING BALTIMORE CITY STUDENT!!
VOLUNTEER TUTORS are needed to work with our students once a week!
VOLUNTEER DRIVERS are needed to shuttle our students from Baltimore Polytechnic Institute/Western High School and Baltimore City College High School to the Esperanza Center in Fells Point.
¡Adelante Latina! meets from early September to early June, with a 5-week break from mid-December to late January. The program takes place twice a week from 4:15-6:15 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays at the Esperanza Center located at 430 S. Broadway. On one day, students meet as sophomore, junior and senior cohorts with a teacher; on the other day each student has her own tutor. The hope is for tutors to continue with the same student for all three years of the program.
Tutors are expected to speak proper, grammatical English. Although teaching experience is not required, it is helpful. Tutors must be able to teach reading comprehension, writing skills and vocabulary on a high school level. If they are teaching juniors or seniors, tutors will also help with the SAT verbal test preparation. Answers to the SAT questions are always provided but the tutor is expected to explain them. In general, assignments provided by the ¡Adelante Latina! teacher are given priority, followed by help with school assignments in the humanities.
No knowledge of Spanish is required!!
