Latinx and Migrant Aid serves the Albemarle County and Charlottesville region's Latinx and migrant community through four programs: Homework Helpers, Hispanic Family Night, Cherry Avenue, 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.

 

WHAT WILL VOLUNTEERS DO?

Volunteers will travel to homes, elementary schools, and local orchards to either tutor migrant children in general academic skills or help the parents learn English.

 

WHEN?

Hispanic Family Night: Students will volunteer one evening; Monday or Wednesday evening after 5:00pm.

Homework Helpers: Students will volunteer one evening Monday-Thursday after 5:00pm, with certain sites that require volunteers during the late morning or early afternoon.

Adult Tutoring: Students will volunteer on Thursdays after 5:00pm.

Cherry Avenue: Students will volunteer on Tuesdays after 6:00pm.

Transportation will be provided via carpool organized by a Program Director.

“These parents want their kids to succeed in school, and Madison House students have really helped them in putting that expectation on the kids. Tutors come in and really get them completing their homework.”
