In just two hours a week, you can make a positive lifelong impact on a child.

Your help can provide students with the individual attention they need to find personal and academic success.

  • Tutor the same student each week for at least one full academic semester. You help the student develop study skills, prepare for upcoming tests, and finish homework.

  • Set goals with your student to help them grow personally and academically.

  • Call the parents weekly to make sure the student is both accomplishing their weekly goals and finishing homework. A key component of our tutoring program is the relationship between our tutors and our parents.


"I want to express my personal appreciation to all involved for a well run program. Your staff values my time as a volunteer and ensures that any time spent at Midtown is a positive one. I commend you and your staff on all your hard work and hope that I am able to be a part of this positive experience for years to come. " - MEF Volunteer

310 S. Peoria St. - Metro Achievement Center, Chicago, IL 60607, US

Mission Statement

Midtown Educational Foundation (MEF) is a nonprofit organization with an award-winning approach aimed to develop the whole person. MEF guides low-income urban youth in Chicago along pathways of success. Our proven enrichment programs embrace the dignity of the person by focusing on academic excellence, virtue development, individual attention, and parental engagement.

Description

MEF operates through its Metro Achievement Center for girls and Midtown Center for boys in grades 4 - 12. Programs focus on Hispanic and African American youth, offering after-school and summertime growth opportunities that help students of average academic ability to achieve above-average results. MEF’s approach can be remembered with the help of an acronym that also describes every child it serves: "A V.I.P." The "A" stands for ACADEMICS. The "V" stands for basic VIRTUES. The "I" stands for INDIVIDUAL ATTENTION. The "P" stands for PARENTS. MEF operates on the principle that parents are the primary educators of their children.

For the past 19 years, we've had 95% of our students attend college prep high schools and 100% be accepted into college, with 92% retention in college. Help us continue the trend! Be a tutor, role model, and mentor at Metro Achievement Center for girls or Midtown Center for boys!

  • Volunteer tutor-mentor 2 hours once a week at our center, helping a student with their homework and goal-setting.
  • Build a unique relationship with the same student one-on-one.
  • No experience necessary! Tutor training available.
