Latino and Migrant Aid

Latino and Migrant Aid serves Albemarle County and Charlottesville region's Latino and migrant community through three programs: Homework Helpers, Hispanic Family Night, and Adult Tutoring.  At various sites throughout the area, volunteers tutor Latino working migrants and their majority Spanish speaking families in English as a Second Language and general academic skills. Below are general descriptions of the three programs.

 

Program Sites:

 

Hispanic Family Night

 

What will the volunteers do?


Volunteers travel to a local elementary school to work in a group setting with several migrant families. Volunteers will help kids with homework, English skills, and study skills. Other volunteers will work with the parents to help them learn English. Although it is more of a group environment, tutoring is usually one-on-one.

 

When?


Students will fill out their availability and volunteer one evening either:
  • Tuesday evening after 5PM
  • Thursday evening after 5PM

 

Homework Helpers

 

What will the volunteers do?


Volunteers travel to the homes of migrant families and help kids with homework and study skills. Some volunteers will work with parents on learning English or other endeavors such as studying for the citizenship test.

 

When?


Students will fill out their availability and volunteer one evening:

Monday-Thursday evening after 5PM (a very small number of sites will take place in the afternoon after 3PM)

 

Adult Tutoring

 

What will volunteers do?


Volunteers travel as a group to local orchards to tutor migrant workers in English. With the help of a Migrant Education teacher, the volunteers will hold group lessons and one-on-one tutoring with the migrant workers. Tutoring often takes place in an outdoor, rustic setting (particularly during the fall semester, when there are more opportunities for this kind of tutoring).

 

When?


Students will fill out their availability and volunteer one shift:

Monday-Thursday after 5pm.
