Welcome Jeniffer!

Jeniffer Garcia is a biology major at the University of Michigan who will be joining the Cambio Creativo team for two months, working closely with our educational program, but also providing support throughout the organization. Jeniffer is an enthusiastic and committed volunteer who has experience in literacy and language tutoring. Last year, she tutored low income students at the Bryant Community Center. Jeniffer has also tutored international students at the University of Michigan to improve their English and conversation skills at the LSA Language Institute and the Michigan Language Center. This year, Jeniffer also volunteered for the America Reads program at the University of Michigan, tutoring in Ypsilanti school to improve literacy skills through individual attention and instruction. Jeniffer said she hopes to gain another learning experience at Cambio Creativo. She also wants to “see first hand how a volunteer could make a difference” during her 8-week volunteer experience in Colon.
