Kristopher Woods Tutoring

For the past decade, Carla Goodmen and Lee Beth Burge have been dedicated to serving the children of Kristopher Woods Apartment Complex. They have rallied their friends and resources to make sure that kids have what they need to do well in school by providing homework help. Along the way, they have created lasting, meaningful relationships with families that go above and beyond the act of helping with students' homework. 

Friends of Refugees Youth Programs has joined Carla and Lee Beth in their vision for the youth of Kristopher Woods, working together so that we can see them thrive in elementary school and prepared for the challenges and opportunities that middle and high school bring. 


Together, Kristopher Woods Elementary Tutoring has become a growing program that meets the out-of-school academic needs of children where they live. Students come to our program from 4-6 PM and are paired with a volunteer to help them with their homework, participate in enrichment activities, and receive a healthy snack. 

Get involved:

We always need supplies such as pencils, erasers, flash cards, books, and wide ruled notebook paper for our students to use. We always need more volunteers to serve once a week as a homework helper, working alongside our students while they complete their school work.
