GLOBAL FRIENDS COALITION RESILIENT YOUTH ELL PROGRAM
Global Friends Coalition's Resilient Youth Program matches positive young adult volunteer role models with New American youth attending Red River High School and South Middle School to serve the educational and acculturation needs of diverse New American youth. Here are the details of the program:
• Devote at least an hour a week to tutoring in the Red River or South ELL classroom.
• Attend an orientation session for mentors.
• Possibly participate in planned events/activities for tutors and ELL students outside of the school day.
This is an excellent way to get involved in the community! If you are interested in the program or have any questions, or if you are a continuing mentor, please contact Joey Schaefbauer or Jennifer Vetter at Joseph.Schaefbauer@my.und.edu or Jennifer.Vetter@my.und.edu
