Bienvenidos to Latinos in Action here is a little glimpse of what you as a student will be doing this year.
As an LIA student, you will be paired with an elementary school student who is either learning English as a second language, are struggling with reading or other subjects, or simply needs a good role model. Your job will be to teach academic skills that help the elementary student succeed while also coaching and inspiring the student. Your will be an example of responsibility, caring, self-discipline, and hard work.
As a part of the class, LIA students will receive training in leadership, teaching methods, mentoring, job skills, and college preparation. In the end, you will make a difference in your own life and in someone else’s life! Also, you can list the service you perform on your college applications.
I am excited to welcome you to our famiLIA.
