Community Service Opportunity from Katie Houston (’04)

June 6, 2017 / Catherine Nicholas / Events

A MLGWS alumna, Katie Houston (Class of 2004) has reached out to offer a community service opportunity to current students.  She’s volunteering heavily with the non-profit ReEstablish Richmond, which works to help refugees acclimate and put down roots in the area.

They have a high need right now for volunteer tutors who are willing to help middle and elementary school students with English language skills and simple math skills (e.g. counting to 100).  The kids can communicate verbally in English, but a lot of them are struggling with literacy, and their schools don’t have the capacity to help them adequately.

Any interested students can contact Katie directly at kghouston05@gmail.com.  She would really love to have Maggie Walker students involved with the organization and emphasized that if anyone is available to help soon, the need for tutors is pressing.

We look forward to connecting the alumni community with current students for opportunities like these in our role as the Alumni Office.  Thanks so much to Katie for getting in touch.
