We believe in giving our members exactly what they want: volunteering that is directly related to our future careers, the opportunity to work directly with health professionals, and the opportunity to become more involved with a smaller community of like-minded individuals.

What we offer:
We hold a variety of unique workshops that allow you to learn from some of the finest people at the University of Michigan (physician speakers, Career Center application advise, and HVA first aid/CPR training). We also give our members the opportunity to volunteer directly in healthcare settings (Mott and VA Hospital, Sunrise Senior Living care, and hospice assistance).

Phalombe Initiative for Educationhttps://maizepages.umich.edu/organization/piehttps://maizepages.umich.edu/organization/PIEOngoingOngoingOur mission is to unite communities through education, cultural immersion, and personal empowerment. We accomplish this through service activities, including an annual seven-week volunteer trip to Phalombe, that promote STEM education.

PIE strives to empower communities by advancing the effectiveness of educational institutions and the success of students in Phalombe, Malawi, as well as here in Ann Arbor, through STEM-focused educational outreach, activities, and tutoring. This organization recognizes the dual needs for engineering-focused educational programs in Phalombe and for a fostering of global humanitarianism and multiculturalism here in Ann Arbor. In this light, PIE is dedicated to the specific and related goals of advancing STEM education and interest in Phalombe while simultaneously engaging local students with multiculturalism, global knowledge, and volunteerism.

The creation of this organization initially followed a need demonstrated by a survey of students who were involved with the 2014 Common Reading Experience in some way, whether participant or facilitator. Since then it has evolved with a purpose formulated from collaboration of its initial members with the EKARI Foundation in Phalombe.

As a student-run organization here at the University of Michigan, our primary focus is providing mentoring to all ages of our Hispanic Latino Community here in Ann Arbor/Ypsilanti. We have three different programs within our organization: Pre-K, K-12, and Adult.

What we do:
Our Pre-Kindergarten program focuses on younger children and helping them prep for school. Our Pre-K program uses lots of resources from the AADL such as games, children's books, and online learning games.

Second is our K-12 program. In this program we focus on helping the kids with the schoolwork that they bring with them to our tutoring sessions. The amount of work they have varies by student, therefore tutors are also ready to work with their students on the subjects they may have a more difficult time with… extra practice is always good!

Finally, we also have an adult ESL program. This program focuses on helping parents and other community members with their English. For this program, we like to have tutors who are proficient in Spanish.

With all three of our programs, we pair one or two students with a tutor. We welcome anyone who wishes to be a tutor or a student with us. We especially love getting new tutors as we have a long list of students awaiting a placement. The bigger our organization, the more good we do.
