Tutoring Together

The International Rescue Committee

The IRC in Denver's Youth Education team is excited to announce the completion of their pilot program of Tutoring Together! The teams' interest in this particular program - with the goal to support client teens with their school work, English language acquisition, and adjustment to school expectations in the USA - was partly born out of feedback from a IRC in Denver Client Voice focus group, in which teens strongly advocated for their need of more personalized English language training.

Tutoring Together, which receives support from experts at the IRC Headquarter as well as the National Student Support Accelerator at Standford University, has been part of the IRC in Denver's Youth education team priorities since December 2023. Since then, the team has had regular meetings with other participating offices, received trainings on how to improve tutoring programs for student newcomers, and connected with volunteers. In May 2024, participating youth staff visited the IRC Headquarters in NYC for their annual Volunteer Tutoring Quality Improvement Conference, with the goal to improve each stage of the planned Denver's Tutoring Together program.
