Volunteer Tutors Needed to Help Refugees with English and Computer Skills

JOBSplus! is recruiting volunteer tutors to help refugees practice “everyday” English and teach them computer skills this summer. No experience is necessary. Tutors need to attend a two-and-a-half hour training session in June, plus an orientation where you will meet your students.

When: Classes are from Monday, July 6 to Friday, August 14. Volunteers will teach two hours per week.

Where: Various locations throughout Syracuse.

Contact: Wendy Carl-Isome at wendy.carl@jobsplus.cc or call (315) 442-3242 x1162.

Jobs_PlusJOBSplus! Summer Tutoring Program Fact File:

  • In 2014 the program helped 61 refugees improve their English and computer skills. The refugees were instructed by 38 volunteer tutors. Approximately 60% of the refugees were self-sufficient within 90 days of the instruction.
  • This will be the sixth year of the JOBSplus! tutoring program for refugees. The program was started in 2010.
  • In 2009 JOBSplus! offered a keyboarding class to refugees. The class was so successful it led to the creation of the summer tutoring program.
