“I have really loved volunteering through ETA. I think it is a model of what we must do to bring people together, prevent silos, and build bridges. ETA has helped me out of COVID slump and helped me to connect to others in different ways.”
Julie, senior volunteer
“My sister heard Diego reading with his ETA volunteer and she said to me, ‘I can’t believe it, Diego was speaking English!’ He is so much braver about speaking English now.”
“Every week I leave with more knowledge than I had before. These conversations have truly opened my eyes to the other side of my community I never really had the opportunity to communicate with before.”

“I wish every student and their family could have this kind of support!”

“I feel like my daughter has connected so well with her ETA volunteer. She looks forward to meeting with her. I’m so happy this will continue over the summer too, and into kindergarten.”
