KLASS and Skilled Volunteers For Israel
We were among the beneficiaries of this wonderful program for professionals from the United States who come to Israel for a month and volunteer with non-profits.
In July three English teachers who came through Skilled Volunteers for Israel tutored at KLASS. They taught high school pupils, and the results were excellent: the interaction between the tutors and the young people not only improved the standard of their English, but also for the first time they were using the English they knew to communicate in a real life situation. These pupils’ self-confidence and self-esteem also gained a boost. For instance, H. (who has just completed 10th grade) comes regularly for coaching in math. She received three 1½ hours sessions in English from one of the Skilled Volunteers, as a result of which she feels she can now continue to work on her own, and is feeling good about herself.
