This Friday, May 27, the African Youth Community Organization and Al Jebal Mediterranean restaurant will be holding a fund-raising event from 6 to 8 p.m. at Jackson Middle School, 16025 SW 35th Ave. in Portland.

The event, "A Walk in Our Shoes" will help raise "the needed resources to both sustain and to growth students who are falling through the cracks by providing academic tutoring, language instruction, afterschool sports activities and advice on cultural integration."

The African Youth Community Organization provides an After School Program for immigrant and refugee children to help with tutoring and enrichment activities to get them more involved in their schooling; a Sports Program to engage youth in team building athletic activities; and a Community Involvement Program to develop leaders and volunteers to help the African immigrant/refugee community.
