MFEE offers bilingual after school programming for our youngest ELL students! Modeled off the success of Entrenadores Escolares, Oruguitas (“Little Caterpillars”) provides after school enrichment two days a week for K-5 children. The goals are not just to support students academically but to create meaningful connection and community. Using play based activities, K-5 students work with intergenerational learning coaches to boost their English, math, and social skills.
Become a tutor. Through Entrenadores Escolares (for middle and high schoolers) and Oruguitas (for K-5th graders) students get much-needed social connections, academic support, and educational enrichment. The after school programs couldn’t operate without our adult and teen volunteers who help students with homework, test prep, and core skill development in English and math. The students' needs are dynamic and change over time - tutors do not need to have specific academic aptitudes. What is most important is patience and an encouraging approach to supporting the students!

Become a volunteer driver. Our students can’t get to and from the after school program without the help of volunteer drivers. There are many options for days and times - you provide the car and friendly face, and MFEE takes care of the rest!
