The Aprendiendo Juntos project

The Aprendiendo Juntos project engages English learning students and their families. Led by William & Mary professors, Professor Jennifer Bickham Mendez of the Village & Professor Katherine Barko-Alva, Aprendiendo Juntos recruited 50 students from William & Mary to tutor English learning students at Jamestown and Lafayette high schools. The program also partners with Grove Christian Outreach Center to provide networking, healthcare literacy, and legal support to English learner students’ families.  This initiative emphasizes the unique skills and resilience of English learner students and their families, and the partners aim to amplify the voices of this growing community in Greater Williamsburg.
