We Refugee Tutoring started in 2009 with a handful of “do-gooders:” teachers and inner-city ministers. They teamed up to help provide education and resources to the many local refugee families in San Diego. Soon afterward, they realized that many of the children had no ability to thrive in school because of their lack of experience with education and unfamiliarity with English. As the years have passed, the program has grown exponentially.In recent years, the plight of the global refugee crisis received international attention.
As the volunteer base grows and the needs of the students increase as well. We need more administrative professionals and materials. I’ve been humbled to be able to assist with all the website needs of this organization since the early days. I’m even more glad to help get them off the ground with donations
- 1,172 Volunteers attended 7,543 tutoring sessions and Events we orgnized.
- Each volunteer donated 9.6 hours each for a total of 11,314 volunteer hours.
