Group Description:

ERUUF's partnership with El Centro Hispano builds a shared community of service, love, and spirit.  El Centro holds an after school tutoring program, focusing on early literacy skills, on Monday evenings from 4:30-6:00pm.  ERUUF volunteers serve as the tutors and build deep, meaningful relationships with latino/hispanic students aged 5 through 8, their families, and the El Centro community. Since our tutors meet with the same student week after week, the relationships and literacy skills grow and mature alongside in unison. 

Overarching Goals:

To build a community among justice-minded ERUUF members and the broader community in Durham (El Centro Hispano), to help early elementary students gain early literacy and reading skills, to help close the "achievement gap," to provide an opportunity for ERUUF members to engage in justice work in a hands-on way, to deepen our spiritual practice through service, and to have fun!

About El Centro Hispano:
