About

After School Program Volunteer Tutor: Corazón a Corazón

Are you looking for a site to complete service hours or just an opportunity to be the one who gives to help others needing a helping hand?

We invite you to join us in carrying out our mission to empower the community at our new location in Blue Island as an After-School Enrichment tutor. All training is provided free of charge.

Volunteer with our After School Enrichment program and help children needing an extra push to succeed in school!

Corazón a Corazón always welcomes volunteers to tutor grade school children with their homework in our program. Our goal is to help children from the surrounding community by giving them extra practice with their schoolwork and a healthy snack.

Sessions run from 3 pm until 5:30 pm- Monday through Thursday.

Although this is an unpaid internship, we are offering academic credit (internship credit) to tutors who can volunteer 10 hours per week all semester. We are hopeful for a minimal commitment of 2 days per week for 3 months, but are grateful for whatever commitment a tutor can give us. All tutors are required to pass a background check and to attend a Virtus training (provided free of charge)
