Doors to Hope students continue to meet their tutors for classes in ESL and to participate in after-school tutoring via FaceTime, WhatsApp or Zoom. AST assistant, Sophie Steppe coordinates tutoring with K-12 students, and program manager, Gabby Peak Ramírez coordinates ESL virtual classes.
Thanks to support from donors including St. Albert the Great Church, Doors to Hope purchased Chromebooks for students and tutors without computers at home. A grant from Kosair Charities will allow us to purchase additional equipment to help families access the internet with an improved connection.
