ICNA DMV and ICNA Relief join hands together to announce a great new program!
Free Online Tutoring Service
Update as of Dec 6, 2020: Alhumdulillah, we have 15 volunteers teaching students at this time but in order to serve more students, we will need more volunteer tutors or we will have to wait for tutors to complete their current assignments. Therefore any new students will be put on a waiting list for future sessions and it can take several weeks.
ICNA DMV area chapters are excited work with ICNA Relief of Maryland to announce a new free program for our area students. Under the current circumstances, we recognize a need many parents have to offer some additional help to their young students. Alhumdulillah, our community is also full of talented youth and adults who would love to help out by volunteering as tutors.
