ORGANIZATION: Near West Intergenerational School

  • 1 person is interested

The Intergenerational Schools have small, multi-age classes that allow children to learn and teach alongside older adults who serve as learning partners.

Each of our 750 students work side-by-side with learning partners, where they exchange ideas, build friendships and share a love of reading. Together, we’re building a community that reaches far beyond our school walls and children’s elementary years.

Volunteer Learning Partners commit one to three hours each week connecting one-on-one with students to practice reading or math through sharing books and playing math games. Students and volunteers learn from one another and strengthen community across generations. Join us!

Age Requirements

This project is for volunteers ages 18 and up and requires a background check, which we will provide.
