YMCA International Services is a unique center of the YMCA of Greater Houston that delivers client-centered programs to refugees, immigrants, and other vulnerable populations to advance their economic independence, social integration, and civic participation. The Y helps newcomers restore hope, build stability, create opportunity and change futures. YMCA International Services is continuously recognized as a leader in the Houston immigrant community.
YMCA International Services is providing a family strengthening course designed to enrich connections within families by:
1) Improving family relations
2) Reduce stress and family conflict
3) Learn how to budget and navigate the US Financial System
The classes will be conducted in Spanish, thus we will need a Spanish speaker that speaks English and can assist in conducting the classes. Duties for the volunteer will include assisting in teaching the curriculum and assisting with coaching the family participants, that can include individual tutoring or teaching a small group. The Relationship Enhancement Course Spanish Interpreter will also conduct data collection by giving instructions on taking surveys and collecting demographic information from the participants of the classes.
If you are passionate about refugees and immigrants and wish to enrich the lives of these families please consider volunteering some of your time in helping us teach families principles that can lead to stronger family bonds.
We need volunteers to help with this Monday through Friday 9:00 am to 2:00 pm.
