Heart House Volunteer Opportunity

Heart House is a nonprofit that provides safety, education and opportunity to refugee and underprivileged students. We would love to have SMU students for field educational opportunities, internships, Americorps and student teaching experiences. We have a diverse demographic of students, 98% of English Language Learners.

We begin our program Monday, September 12th. Meet some of our students by visiting our YouTube page, https://www.youtube.com/channel/UC-dKDdPZN8KaMXVPQdC3xuQ.

Take care,

Lenita Dunlap, MPA, MA
