During the summer, students need extra support to do well in school. Teen and adult volunteers are needed from 8:30am-12:00pm Monday through Thursday. Simple training is required. Minimum of 5 sessions is required but regular participation is encouraged for the students to get to know the tutors/ teachers.
This is a very fun and engaging experience for not only the students, but for volunteers as well! Volunteers work with students on math, reading and writing, but also helping with hands on STEM experiments and art activities.
All volunteers are required to wear a mask on-site at Beacon Place. Temperatures will be taken and social distancing will be required.
Beacon Place is inspiring and guiding our neighborhood’s children and families toward a brighter tomorrow.
Beacon Place is a neighborhood community center in Waukegan, IL with programs for children and families that focus on academic growth, improved health, and building the skills that allow individuals and families to see their own path to a brighter tomorrow.
