Get Involved

Get involved helping a world of children from more than 30 different countries to learn standard English.

 

There are six different ways you can help:

 

1. IN-DEPTH ENGLISH TUTORING OF A CHILD – $2000

 

An In-Depth Donation includes 9 months of teaching/learning materials for child.


 

2. ONE TIME DONATION

 

The English Tutoring Project is a labor-intensive initiative, and as such, our largest expenses involve providing high-quality, certified instructors and technology for learning. ETP operates within Archdiocesan schools, therefore does not have overhead or capital expenses. As a result, your gift directly impacts a child in our program. For example, the levels below are correlated to our budget expenses per student per year.

  • $35 gives a week of ½ hour sessions to a student
  • $100 provides new learning applications for a classroom
  • $150 gives a month of ½ hour sessions to a student
  • $500 provides materials for a classroom for a year
  • $1,000 provides updated technology
  • $1,200 gives a semester of full tutoring services to a group
  • $2,400 gives a year of full tutoring services to a group
  • $45 provides interpreter’s service for 1 hour for school meetings or conferences with families
  • $50 provides translation services for 1 page of print for school communications
