Sign up to become a Teacher’s Aide for New Refugee Students
We are in need of volunteer aides for our refugee school. We are looking for people who can donate a few hours to help with newly arrived refugees students at our Tumaini Welcome and Transition Center. Sign up here.
The Tumaini Welcome & Transition Center helps new-comer students successfully transition into their boundary schools. Participants receive an intensive two-week instructional program focusing on academic and social skills in English. The curriculum includes: oral language, school culture, literacy, numeracy, computers, and collaborative learning.
As students transition to home schools, parent navigators and multilingual refugee support staff will continue to conduct school and home visits. To facilitate family involvement, parents will participate in ESL, computer skills, and school navigation classes.
