PAIR programming for middle schools students
Summary: In “Global Learners,” mentors support middle school students after school through activities designed to promote English language acquisition, build social and emotional skills, and understand and complete schoolwork.
Details: PAIR operates Global Learners programs at three middle schools with significant refugee populations as well as a summer site. PAIR volunteers meet with students to provide supportive relationships, homework assistance, English language practice, and recreational and creative activities. Sessions begin with outside games, homework help, and sharing time to transition from the school day. Global Learners assists participants in developing more positive attitudes toward school, achieving greater academic success, developing more positive relationships with peers and adults, and continuing their education through high school and beyond.
