This after-school enrichment program takes place twice a week at Oglethorpe Avenue Elementary School, focusing on third- through fifth-graders.
Come volunteer with us! This program connects undergraduate and graduate UGA students with students in the community, offering them a window into the possibilities provided by education. Our UGA student volunteers have the opportunity to gain valuable-real-world experience working with children while also motivating students and learning about the Athens Latino community.
This program is an excellent example of how UGA students connect with the Athens community. Tutors give their time and knowledge to Latino and English language-learning children, helping them with homework, reading skills, (especially for younger children), and play learning games with them. Tutors may work with students individually or in small groups.
The most eye-opening and rewarding of all my experiences this semester.— UGA Mentor
Being a part of this community, and seeing what positive things go on has really opened my eyes and taught me many things.— UGA Mentor
