ORGANIZATION: Youth Services

  • 63 people are interested

Study Buddies is a free academic-support program designed for children in grades 1-8. A small group of children is paired with a Study Buddy, who is a volunteer high school student or an adult from the community. In addition to providing homework help, the program also focuses on relationship building and mentorship.

This program is in person at our agency in Glenview on Monday and Wednesday evenings from 7-8:00pm. To help keep everyone healthy, we will be requiring each participant to follow these guidelines: wear a mask at all times, maintain 3 feet distance during all activities, and follow any additional safety rules created by the staff.

Tutor responsibilities include:

> Support assigned student(s) with homework and academic support
> Be a positive role model
> Commit to one evening a week (either Monday or Wednesday) for a full semester
> Be an ambassador for Youth Services and its mission
> Spanish is helpful but not required
