Do you enjoy mentoring youth? Are you looking for a volunteer opportunity but don't have much time to offer? If so, Chicago Prize Hoops (CPH) may have the perfect volunteer opportunity for you.
CPH administers an after-school program geared towards youth between 5th and 8th grade, and which consists of three key elements: (1) academic success, (2) mentoring, and (3) basketball training (please see our organization description for more information about each element). Our upcoming 2016 Fall Program will run from mid-October to late December, and we will meet with our participants two days per week (Tuesdays and Thursdays).
We seek volunteers who are willing to commit to one set day per week or every other week. The commitment would require you to volunteer your time with us from 5:15-7:15p on Tuesday or Thursday (depending on the day you choose). Volunteers work with our participants by assisting them with homework problems and facilitating various workshops as well as math and reading exercises.
However, the most important responsibility is mentoring our participants. CPH values mentorship because we understand the role it plays in promoting positive life outcomes that range from academics and community involvement to leadership and career development.
