Recent waves of unaccompanied children emigrating to the US from Central American countries have resulted in the placement of more than 170 immigrant children into homes in East Baton Rouge Parish. East Baton Rouge public schools are thus in dire need of English language tutors for these new students. We are calling on Ogden Honors students to help meet this need. Tutors are needed for students at all grade levels, from elementary to high school, and knowledge of the Spanish language is not a requirement (although some Spanish proficiency is a plus). This meeting is for anyone in the Ogden community who may be interested in volunteering this spring. Students who volunteered this past fall and would like to sign up for new time slots are also encouraged to attend. Please e-mail Granger Babcock at with your questions, or if you are unable to attend the meeting on January 20 and would like more information.
