About the event
Martin Luther King Jr. Day 2019
International Day of Service
A Day ON, Not a Day OFF
For MLK Day 2019, we will join Boston Cares and 600 volunteers at the Boston Latin School, to support local immigrants and refugees through the creation of ESOL (English for Speakers of Other Languages) learning tools for community organizations and schools throughout the city of Boston. Volunteers will create English journals, conversation games, and vocabulary and citizenship flashcards for organizations for immigrant and refugee families learning English and preparing for the citizenship exam. MLK Day is always kid-friendly and open to youth 5+. No orientation is required.
Refugees in America Assistance Program (RAAP) is an initiative under Target 5: Global Impact. Under this target, chapters will focus on refugees of color in the United States by partnering with organizations engaged in support activities that assist refugees and their families to integrate into American life. This includes literacy classes, educational training, and other necessary transitional support.
Join the members of Psi Omega along with the Boston Pearl Foundation Debutantes & Escorts and the Precious Pearls Tea Roses for this event.
