Three great ELL and mentoring volunteer opportunities in the FM Area for 2016.
African Initiative for Progress: AIP is looking for mentors to work with New American students at Fargo South High School and Davies High School. Mentoring may include some ELL support, broader homework support, or more general life mentoring. AIP training is available.

Giving + Learning: in-home or school English Language tutoring for an individual, couple, or family. Basic commitment: one hour a week, at a time that is convenient for you and your partner. Primarily adults; some high school tutoring opportunities available. Learners are typically looking for help with:
• Studying for the driver’s permit test

• Homework (in the case of high school students)
In-home at a time convenient for you and the learner.
