COAR logoCommunity Outreach and Advocacy for Refugees (COAR) is a student organization that focuses on supporting refugees in the local area.

Twice per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m.), we tutor refugee students in a range of grades at David Crockett Elementary School. We reinforce what they learn in school by tutoring them in subjects such as math, reading, and writing!

We also lead group activities and we play fun, educational games with the students to make tutoring as enjoyable and productive as possible!

Apply to become a tutor by Friday, January 31, 2020, at 11:59 p.m.!
