ACC partners with Hillside Center for Education in Jamaica to help equip immigrant families through educational resources. The families in the neighborhood are mainly from South Asia and most are Muslim.
The center provides after school tutoring for K-10th grade. Since March of 2020, all tutoring has been moved online. Tutoring sessions run from 5-6:15PM Monday through Thursday.
An English Language Learning class for women meets on Wednesdays with a hybrid model of onling and in-person.
For both tutoring and English classes, the curriculum is provided and volunteers are trained and work alongside staff.
The center also offers girls' and boys' clubs, outdoor kids' clubs in the summer, professional development, and helps prepare students for citizenship exams. These all provide ways to holistically support and encourage entire famiilies.
For more information about the programs and volunteer opportunities, please contact Carin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
This is a great opportunity to impact families in Queens with the love of Christ!
