Youth Mentoring Program: Youth mentors are individuals who are matched with newly-arrived refugee children to provide them with additional social, emotional, or academic support outside of RYP’s after-school programming.  This program is similar to Big Brother/Big Sister in the sense that meeting times and locations are flexible and you will be matched with an individual student or siblings.  Transportation is not required but is helpful, as most of our students live in Arbutus or Northeast Baltimore (Moravia/Frankford area).   You must be able commit to 2 hours per day, one day a week for at least 6 months.
Adult Tutoring: Help tutor single or stay-at-home mothers! Work with an individual or small groups to assist with English Language skills.  Transportation is not required but is helpful, as most potential matches live in Arbutus or Northeast Baltimore (Moravia/Frankford area).   You must be able commit to 2 hours per day, one day a week for at least 6 months.

Do you work with a refugee or asylee who would benefit by having a one-on-one tutor or mentor and is in 5th-12th grade?

Refer the student to the RYP so a volunteer can meet with him or her 2 hours per week through RYP's Individual Mentoring Component.
