What: CHiL is a volunteer-based afterschool program that provides social and emotional support coupled with homework help to low-income middle and elementary school students in Wheeling Township's Community Consolidated School District 21. Under the direction of program staff, volunteer mentors will foster socialization among a small group of students; facilitate social and emotional learning activities; and guide their charges in completing schoolwork.

Where and When: CHiL will take place at Cooper Middle School in Buffalo Grove, IL. The program will begin in late September/early October and go through second week of May. Volunteer mentors are needed on Tuesdays and Thursdays from 3:00-4:45 pm (dates and times subject to change).

Why: Mentoring is a fun and rewarding experience. In addition to the satisfaction that comes with positively impacting those in need, volunteering in schools is an ideal way to meet new people, enhance your resume, and learn new skills. Mentoring at CHiL is also a great way for college and graduate students to gain field hours.
