Looking for ALMAS Volunteers to Teach English to the Latino Community


Hola a todos!
I am Aenia Amin, and I am the undergraduate liasion for Alcancemos Las Metas (ALMAS), an organization that teaches English to Latino Women and their families. Duties for volunteers include: teaching English to the Latino women and their families; aiding Latino children with reading and homework; providing childcare; and assisting in monthly health sessions. You do not need to know Spanish to volunteer, as we match based on the proficiency of both the learner and the teacher. We hold classes every Tuesday from 6-7:30 pm at Bernstein Clinic, starting Sept. 30th. For the undergraduates without cars on campus/ unable to drive, there is a carpool on campus prior to every session; so all students have the opportunity to volunteer. There will be interest meetings on Tues., Sept. 23 and Wed., Sept. 24 from 6-7 pm in Bate 1003. If you are unable to attend the meeting or have any questions, please feel free to email me at amina13@students.ecu.edu or brody.project@gmail.com. Hope to see you guys soon!

Gracias,
Aenia
