Valluvan Tamil Academy volunteers have been teaching Tamil to children in the Northern Virginia region for many years. Tamil Classes are conducted in the weekends for children ages 4 and above. Based on the age and Tamil proficiency of the children, various levels of classes are organized and offered.
For the current school year, Valluvan Tamil Academy teaches about 675+ children in 8 different levels of classes. Every week the classes are conducted on Saturday between 10:30am – 03:30pm (morning session: 10:30am – 12:30pm and evening session: 01:30pm – 03:30pm).
In addition to Tamil education, Valluvan Tamil Academy volunteers have been working with the Greater Washington Tamil Sangam (in the Washington DC metro area) for the children to participate in Tamil activities and competitions such as Thirukkural competition, Tamil singing competition.
