Chicago HOPES for Kids seeks to transform lives by providing academic support for children living in Chicago's homeless shelters.


Did you know that approximately 21,000 Chicago Public School students were identified as homeless during the 2015-2016 academic school year?

Chicago HOPES for Kids empowers these homeless students to succeed academically. With the goal of sustainability, Chicago HOPES for Kids collaborates with schools, shelters and communities to provide after school support for students living in homeless shelters throughout Chicago.

We are currently seeking volunteers for our Fall 2016 program! We ask that our volunteers commit to working with students on literacy, homework, and cultural enrichment activities at least one day per week for the length of one school semester. As we provide free training and support for all of our volunteer tutors, no experience is necessary!

Volunteering with Chicago HOPES for Kids will give you the satisfaction of helping and guiding a child's academic and personal development! If you're interested in volunteering or would like to know more about the program, please contact us at volunteer@chicagohopesforkids.org or visit our website at www.chicagohopesforkids.org!
