Supporting students from French-speaking immigrant families
The tutoring club was created by high-school students of Francophone heritage to support children of French-speaking immigrant families recently arrived in the U.S.
The club creates a network of peers whose goal is to ease the adjustment to a new school system, language and culture and to foster the self-confidence of French-speaking students who have just relocated to the U.S.
Our high-school tutors help with homework, answer questions about the US culture and facilitate the transition into a new school.
The club gives also young immigrants the tools to develop pride in themselves and their origins.
The club is a space where students from French-speaking families meet other students with comparable life stories and help them feel accepted, comfortable and confident in their cultural backgrounds and experiences.
The tutoring club meets on Saturdays during the school-year in Bethesda, MD. You can join the tutoring club by filling out the contact form.
