What is Conexiones?

Conexiones connects Hispanics to the community by facilitating improved English reading and appreciation within Latino families. Spanish-speaking ability is helpful but not necessary!

Home Visits
Volunteers go in pairs to tutor and read with Spanish and Portuguese-speaking families in their homes.

Provo Peaks Elementary
Volunteers are paired with English language learners who struggle to read in English. Duties depend on the individual needs of each struggling student.

How do I get involved?

Contact the program directors at conexiones@byu.edu to get involved.

Volunteer Commitment:

Home Visits: Volunteers will visit their families once a week on average.
Provo Peaks Elementary: Volunteers will sign up for a weekly 30 minute slot.

Training:

Please complete this mandatory 25 minute Minor Protection Training before you begin working with the children at school or in the home. If you'd like to tutor students in the home, you will also need to fill out a BYU Background check before volunteering. Please follow this link and find the "Background Check Request form" to get started. Honor code standing will also be checked.
