Vecinos Unidos (VU) is seeking academic volunteers for the 2023 summer program in Herndon, VA.
As an academic volunteer, your role will include:
- Working with children in grades 2-6 for one, 90-minute session
- Listening as the students read aloud, and providing guidance when they reach an unfamiliar word
- Encouraging students to complete writing prompts, read sight words, and learn phonics
- Assisting students with math worksheets and flash cards (basic addition, subtraction, multiplication, and division)
- Spending time with students on other activities, such as puzzles, games, microscope activities, and crafts
VU’s students are behind in school, and the summer program provides them with much-needed time to continue building their skills and confidence.
