Be a Lunch Buddy: Tutor Elementary School Students In Need

Save to Favorites

ORGANIZATION: Idealist.org

Recruiting Organization: HandsOn Suburban Chicago

Apply today to volunteer during the 2022-2023 school year, which starts in October: https://www.handsonsuburbanchicago.org/lunch-buddies


Who: HandsOn Suburban Chicago needs caring and reliable community members like you to provide academic support to high-needs elementary school students!


What: Lunch Buddies strengthens the foundational academic skills of students in need through volunteer-based tutoring. Under the direction of program staff, volunteer mentors provide homework help, practice math skills, and/or develop literacy skills by reading with groups of 1-3 students.


Where and When: Lunch Buddies sites are located at elementary schools in Palatine and Elko Grove Village, and the program will start in early October and go through mid-May. Volunteer mentors are needed for one hour between 11 am and 1 pm on Mondays, Tuesdays, Wednesdays, or Thursdays (dates and times are subject to change). Choose and commit to one day per week.


Why: Tutoring is a fun and rewarding experience. In addition to the satisfaction that comes with positively impacting those in need, volunteering in schools is an ideal way to meet new people, enhance your resume, and learn new skills. Tutoring at Lunch Buddies is also a great way for college and graduate students to earn field hours.
