A letter from our volunteer coordinator……
I hope you are enjoying your summer. I am reaching out to let you know of our upcoming volunteer opportunities at La Casa de Amistad. With fall right around the corner many of our programs will kick off. Each year we are blessed with the help of generous volunteers to help run our programs. La Casa de Amistad has a total of 10 programs that we run in the fall.
The variety in our programs makes it easier to fit our volunteers’ needs. Whether it be for class credit or personal volunteering, our organization is open for volunteer opportunities for everyone 18 years old and older.
The following programs will be running in the fall and spring:
Yo Puedo Leer (I Can Read) Pre-k availability open Mon-Fri 8:30-11:30 am or 12-3 pm
Crece Conmigo (Grow With Me) after school tutoring k-6th grade 3-5 pm
Adelante (Forward!) after school tutoring 7-12th grade 4-6 pm

Citizenship Classes Tues/Thurs 5-7 pm
Computer Classes (adult Spanish classes) schedule varies

Food Pantry Wed 2-5pm
Family Services (referrals, translations) Availability open Mon-Thurs 9-6 pm

Feel free to contact me with any questions regarding these programs. We will be holding volunteer orientation in August. Also feel free to pass this message along to any friends/family that would be interested in volunteering. We do ask for serious commitments with all of our programs for the entirety of the semester. Fall semester is August-early December but varies depending on program. Spring Semester is January- late April.
I look forward to hearing from you soon,
