Youth Academics: Afterschool Tutors Needed (Virtual)


Project Description:

This is a VIRTUAL Volunteer Program via ZOOM. 




Welcome to El Buen! You are one step closer in helping children in our community improve in academics, physical activity, nutrition, and social and emotional learning.


What’s this program about?

This program provides academic support and supplemental education to children from grades 1st through 8th via zoom. Students are provided with a positive and safe environment to interact with peers while being engaged in science, technology, engineering, art, and math (STEAM curriculum). This program also includes social and emotional learning and physical education.
