~Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed individuals could change the world. Indeed, it's the only thing that ever has~ Margaret Mead
The journey from Africa to America is a long one and after experiencing many hardships in their homelands, refugees and immigrants come to our country with the hopes of getting an education and acquiring skills that will help them succeed in this world. Horn of Africa Services takes these people in with open arms and provides them with a plethora of programs and services available to them. HOAS offers citizenship assistance, computer literacy, employment skills and search, English as a second language, tutoring, family counseling, health and nutrition, and housing search.
We are looking for a plethora of volunteers ranging from after school program tutors working with young kids, computer lab assistants, web designers, SAT/ACT tutors, and tutors to work with kids with Autism.
If you are interested, please contact Lauren Leary, our volunteer coordinator for more details at gro.saoh|reetnulov#gro.saoh|reetnulov. You could make a huge impact on the lives of these individuals and what a better way to contribute your time than to empower people and make their lives richer. It's a great way to get involved in the community, build your resume as a global citizen, and learn about diverse cultures while working with amazing people :)
