Latinx and Migrant Aid serves Albemarle County and Charlottesville Latinx and migrant community through five programs: Homework Helpers, Hispanic Family Night, Cherry Avenue, Sin Barreras, and Adult Tutoring. At various sites throughout the area, volunteers tutor Latinx working migrants and their majority Spanish speaking families in English as a Second Language and general academic skills. Speaking Spanish is not required for all of our sites, though there are places where Spanish speakers are needed!
WHAT WILL VOLUNTEERS DO?
Volunteers will travel to homes, elementary schools, churches, local orchards, or to Jefferson City School to either tutor migrant children in general academic skills or help the parents learn English.
