Youth Buddy - Youth Peer Tutor

The Newcomer Youth Peer Tutor attends our after school programming and assists immigrant and refugee youth aged 12-24 with their homework, English language learning, and recreation activities. The Peer Tutor would be helping with middle school, high school, or university level assignments. There is especially a need for science and math tutors at the middle and high school level, and essay writing support at the university level. Ability to speak a language other than English is an asset, but not required, especially Arabic, Punjabi, or Spanish. 

Tutors need to be available Monday-Friday 3:00- 5:00 pm, a minimum commitment of once a week for 1 year. All volunteers must complete a criminal record check. 

If you want to work with youth and willing to share your knowledge and skills this is the role for you!
