About

East Village Youth Program has spent more than 28 years advancing equity in education through transformative social services that prepare youth and their families to pursue post-secondary education. We started as a couple of volunteers wanting to improve in-school outcomes on Chicago's West Side. Since then, we've become an exemplary model for academic enrichment, youth leadership development, after school programming, college access, and community development.

We are in search of mentors and tutors to join our After School Tutoring Family. Doing so allows you to work one-on-one (or two) with students in 5th - 10th grades, helping them reach their academic goals by creating a supportive learning environment and working through difficult homework problems. Our students are passionate, consistent, and inquisitive. We want our tutors to be the same.

Our ideal tutor will have completed some post-secondary education. That means that college students may also apply! Volunteers must complete our volunteer application, schedule an interview, and complete some basic paperwork. We expect you to commit to attending each Monday and/or Thursday throughout the academic year. Specifically, our tutoring schedule is:

Monday, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
Thursday, 6:30 PM - 7:30 PM
