“Our Caretaker Program is designed to support English Language Learners through a peer mentoring program. In this program, former English Language Learners are trained as peer mentors through weekly, circle-based workshops where they engage in social and emotional learning. The mentors then lead weekly after-school sessions with their mentees, engage in community building activities, small group activities and hold cultural exchanges. The mentors are also responsible for supporting their mentees' academic progress by checking in with their respective teachers and holding tutoring sessions.”
