Description of Agency/Activities: The Myanmar Learning Center is a community-based learning center for Myanmar refugees in Milwaukee. The Center offers after-school tutoring programs, adult ESL programs, and other life skills for Burmese refugees to make a smooth transition to the United States and to make successful career pathways to colleges and universities. The goal and objective of Myanmar Learning Center is to provide trainings for Myanmar refugees that are associated with capacity building and educational and professional development in order to improve their chances for educational and employment opportunities to live and succeed in the United States.

Student Role in Agency: Service learners will have the opportunity to assist middle school and high school students with tutoring, likely in Math and English. Myanmar Learning Center’s programs are run entirely by volunteers and with nearly 30 Burmese students attending weekly Saturday tutoring sessions, tutors are highly valued.
