SOAR afterschool program recruiting volunteer tutors for Fall 2018

by Maria Lang ( / Aug 20, 2018

SOAR: Student Opportunities for After-School Resources is a partnership between the University of Illinois and the International Prep Academy (IPA) in Champaign. The program provides afterschool enrichment for Latina/o bilingual youth.

SOAR tutoring is scheduled for Tuesdays, Wednesdays, and Thursdays from 2 to 3:15 p.m., with time for reading, homework assistance, and social activities with the children. Illinois students are paired with the same child for the semester and may choose to volunteer more than one day per week. Spanish-speaking skills are not necessary to participate. Students who would like to tutor with SOAR need to commit by September 11.
