Project SHINE  is a national service learning program that creates inter-generational relationships with immigrants and refugee elders through language, health literacy and citizenship tutoring. AmeriCorps members with Project SHINE promote a healthy community and strengthen social connections by tutoring English, health literacy, healthy workshops and recreational activities. Members are matched with one of SHINE’s community partner sites throughout Philadelphia. Immigrants and refugees are from Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, and Latin America. AmeriCorps members serve 9-10 hours per week and attend monthly trainings from October-June. Members receive a $1,500 stipend and a $1,132 end of term education award. There are also volunteer and work-study opportunities available in teaching English as a second language.
