Where Language Becomes a Bridge, not a Barrier
Language can keep us apart…or bring us together.
Teach 360 was created to provide one of the most critical needs, language proficiency. Language, while it brings us together, can also be the thing that keeps us apart. A shared language affects someone’s ability to interact with others and their ability to learn and “fit in” with their new surroundings, having serious effects on children’s mental health and social skills down the road.
New American children have made huge strides through our Teach 360 program. Through this program, we offer tutoring and mentoring services to refugee students in-school via the Houston Independent School District.
Our students receive long-term support because we follow their entire academic journey from elementary to high school. Many of our tutors often come from within the Amaanah community, so we are able to provide keen insight and support for the challenges our Teach 360 students encounter.
In addition to linguistics, our vision is to help provide holistic services through partnerships with families, communities and schools to address other ways we can help bridge any learning gaps.
If you are a school or school district interested in Amaanah’s services, please contact us.
