Nurturing minds, inspiring future leaders, changing lives… one student at a time.
Casa de Amistad first began as a ministry of SBPC in 1997, and became its own non-profit organization in 2001. Casa has served children and families in coastal North County San Diego through education and mentoring programs. Its academic mentoring program has grown from serving 3 children on its first night to serving over 230 children and adults annually.
WHO WE SERVE AND HOW?
Casa de Amistad provides after school tutoring and mentoring support to underserved students in our local community. Through the Study Companions Program, students in grades K-12 are paired with volunteer tutors/mentors to receive homework help and educational enrichment. The organization also accompanies high school students on their path to college and career success with the help of the Casa College Consortium. Casa de Amistad empowers all students and their families to overcome barriers to education and empowers future leaders.
WHO JOINS OUR MINISTRY?
Volunteers are integral to the work of Casa de Amistad. Getting involved is a wonderful way to give back right in your own community. The Study Companions Program currently serves over 230 students with the help of an equal number of volunteers. Anyone over the age of 14 can apply to tutor/ mentor a student at Casa de Amistad. We ask for a weekly commitment throughout the academic year.
