Apex UMC and Fiesta Cristiana are working together to establish a tutoring program to partner with Hispanic/Latino children for extracurricular support. No Spanish required – just a willingness to help a child with school work. Training will be offered Aug. 1/2 in CLC 206-7 from 5:30-6:30 p.m. Youth can also be tutors, but should be high school age and come with a character reference (from a teacher, pastor, employer, etc.). We need tutors to commit to at least 6 months with their student. If you are interested or would like to find out more, please contact Kelly Lewis.
There are several ways to participate:
- Hispanic/Latino children ages K-6 can be tutored in any subject area. Tutoring will be in DC 400 on the Apex campus, M/W from 5:30-6:30 p.m.; we will be building a library for reading support specifically. Go ahead and start collecting children’s books–that will come later!
- Parents of the children being tutored must stay during the hour–we have community partners coming in who will be in DC 403 for workshops with parents. Workshops will be in Spanish.
- We need tutors. People who want to tutor a child must come to at least one of the training sessions. Families of tutees can participate as tutors as well, but we will not pair family members for tutoring sessions.
- We are still looking for community partners who can host workshops in Spanish for parents. We are partnering with organizations such as Alliance Health Ministry, The Poe Center for Health Education, Wake County Schools, etc., but since this program spans over the period of a year, we need more partners and appreciate your support in references.
