General Position Description: Delivers cutting-edge High Dosage Tutoring (“HDT”) to formerly pre-literate SLIFE (Students with Limited or Interrupted Formal Education) refugee students in grades K through 12 from Myanmar, Afghanistan, Syria, and Bhutan. The goal is to ensure that educational gaps are filled and that the students catch up to grade level. This is an unpaid volunteer position.

Dates & Times: Our fall virtual tutoring program will run from August 29th to December 23rd, 2022. Virtual tutors must commit to tutoring for the same one hour time slot every weekday (either 4:30-5:30, 5:30-6:30, 7:00-8:00, or 8:00-9:00 all in Central Time). This is a minimum 5 hour/week commitment.

Philosophy: We are a community, and we invest in each other every day. We want our volunteers to have robust experiences at FORA and to help them on their journey as they search for and discover their life calling.

Qualifications: As you will be teaching reading and/or math to preliterate students, you need to be able to fluently read in English. If you can read well in English, you have the educational qualifications for this job. We value patience, kindness, wellness, intercultural connection, a passion for learning and a determined resilience... and modeling these values for others. All tutors must undergo a formal background check to work with the children. All online tutors must be 18 years or older, and have reliable daily access to a computer or iPad.

Recommendations and Awards: If you meet the necessary criteria, FORA will nominate you for a prestigious Presidential Volunteer Service Award.

Application process: Please apply through our online portal at https://www.refugeefora.org/volunteertutorapplication

Learning outcome #1: Volunteer will learn how to view and deliver educational services through a social justice lens that values not only solidarity but also subsidiarity and sustainability.

Learning outcome #2: Volunteer will learn how to implement High Dosage Tutoring (HDT) strategies, a form of tutoring that has recently been recommended by numerous institutions to accelerate student learning.

Learning outcome #3: Volunteer will learn how to support and empower refugee students. Most of the students with whom we work are Rohingya students from Myanmar. The Rohingya have been subject to ethnic cleansing and/or genocide and have been identified by the United Nations as the most persecuted minority on Earth. However, they are also not only resilient but also highly motivated to obtain a robust education.
