Glenwood Academy

We are a local residential school for underprivileged youth and are always in need of volunteers.

We are in need of tutors for our high school students in English, Algebra, Geometry, History, and Science.

Our campus has a grade-school on site and a partnership with (2) local high schools where our older students attend class while they continue to reside with us on our campus. We have a sprawling 120 acres with 13 cottages that our kids reside in with their house parents year-round and a very dedicated staff.

We require background checks be completed prior to volunteering. Our current volunteers have expressed that working with our students has been the most rewarding experience of their lives.

If you are looking to truly make a difference in the world, please contact nsheahan@glenwoodacademy.org or 708-756-5102.

About Glenwood Academy

Location:

500 W. 187th St., Glenwood, IL 60425, US

Mission Statement

Mission: Glenwood Academy nurtures and educates at-risk children by inspiring excellence, building character, and strengthening community.

Description

The goal of Glenwood Academy is to eradicate poverty, injustice and inequality through the power of residential education.

With a reputation of excellence for over 130 years, Glenwood Academy (formerly Glenwood School for Boys) is greater Chicago’s only boarding school that offers a safer, nurturing environment for disadvantaged children. Willing and able to learn but constrained by difficult social and economic situations, each year approximately 150 of these children come to Glenwood to live and learn - both in and out of the classroom. Stress factors in these children's lives include students who come from distressed and dangerous neighborhoods, single-parent and low-income families, underperforming schools, and other varying factors that impede growth and development. Here, young minds are challenged, character is built, family relationships are strengthened, and potential is attained. More than just a school, Glenwood is a bright new world of promise for disadvantaged children with the ability and desire to succeed.
