What is the SUN School all about?

Sabin SUN, a program of the Immigrant and Refugee Community Organization (IRCO), aims to improve the lives of children, their families and the community by extending the school day and develop schools as "community centers" in their neighborhoods. SUN Community Schools strive to be a community "hub." They link with other community institutions, such as the libraries, parks and community centers, neighborhood health clinics and area businesses.

SUN Community Schools

  1. Extend the school day and broaden the educational resources for the community
  2. Bring and coordinate services to the community
  3. Bring the community together to break down isolation and strengthen families.
  4. Build relationships across generations, cultures and incomes

Sabin SUN is proud to partner with Chess for Success, AKA Science, MAD Science, Concordia University, Oregon Food Bank, 4-H Wildlife Stewards, Whole Foods Market Fremont, Portland Police Bureau, Motion Magic,Saturday Academy and Portland Early Learning Project to offer high quality extended day classes. Classes also include content in visual arts, music, drama, cooking, dance, and foreign language/culture.


Are you interested in volunteering or know someone who is? 

We have many volunteers who help with snack, assist in instruction and even teach classes. The time commitment can be as little as one hour per week and will include a full volunteer orientation so you feel supported in your efforts. Please get in touch if you are interested in donating your time and talent to offer more class opportunities to Sabin students and/or their families. Please contact SUN Site Manager, Rachel Prust if you are interested in volunteering.
