Volunteering with ¡Vamos!
The ¡Vamos! Program was created to target 9th and 10th grade Latinx students who have been classified as economically disadvantaged and/or have shown poor academic performance (repeated a grade, failed one or more core classes, been classified as Limited English Speaking, have excessive absences, or scored below a 2 in their EOC or EOG).
Volunteers will serve as tutors for high school students in the ¡Vamos! program. These volunteers will be responsible for helping students with their homework at Asheville High School or Erwin High School once a week. They will also be responsible for all other related aspects of the program, including but not limited to; driving to high schools, communicating with the ¡Vamos! Coordinator via email, phone and/or social media, and attending training sessions and mandatory monthly meetings
Volunteers will be expected to be able to commit 2-3 hrs per week (including travel time) for tutoring sessions. The volunteers must also maintain appropriate professional decorum while communicating with the ¡Vamos! coordinators, students, and anyone else involved with the ¡Vamos! program.
