In-home tutoring

School Year

Est. Hours: 1 hour per week
Locations: Aurora

Our In-Home Tutoring program matches volunteers in a one-on-one relationship with a high school aged refugee youth. This is a unique opportunity to work one-on-one with refugee youth who may be struggling academically due to previous limited schooling or gaps in education. Challenges range from basic literacy to subject competency, so the assistance you provide may vary based on need, yet is undeniably instrumental in their overall success in school. The minimum time commitment for this program is one hour/week for the duration of the semester. Experience working with youth or in education preferred, but not required. If interested, please contact us at refugeevolunteer@lfsrm.org in Denver.

LFS has been resettling refugees in the Rocky Mountain region since 1978, assisting refugees as they start new lives in the US to attain self-sufficiency and independence through support with housing, learning English, employment, social services, school programming, and more. As an organization approved by the US Government to also resettle Unaccompanied Refugee Minors, LFS works with foster parents from diverse ethnic and linguistic backgrounds to provide special training and support on the adjustment needs of refugee youth.
