Building Bridges

Direct Service
As part of this group, volunteers will participate in an intergenerational tutoring program with Union Settlement in East Harlem schools with grades K-3 once or twice a week. For this opportunity, volunteers must be 45 years of age or older. The agency will provide all training materials and ongoing support for volunteers. There are also volunteer opportunities in the Adult Education Program tutoring and mentoring adults preparing for their high school equivalency exam, which can take place in the mornings or evenings. No prior teaching experience is needed.

Outside of volunteering, the group will meet monthly to process and discuss readings from "Tattoos on the Heart - The Power of Boundless Compassion" by Father Greg Boyle. As Director of Mental Health at Union Settlement, Bonnie has found that establishing "kinship" and standing "in the margins" with this community to be a very spiritual experience.

Union Settlement is an on-the-ground resource for East Harlem residents of all ages, and a passionate advocate for the needs of underserved communities. Read more here: http://unionsettlement.org.
