About

Jump Start provides volunteer tutors to work one-on-one with young men who are incarcerated at the Illinois Youth Center in St. Charles. The youth range from 13 to 21 years of age and almost all are behind in reading and math. Most volunteers work with one youth at a time for approximately one hour per week, though some volunteers may choose to do more. Teaching experience is not required and training and resources are provided. All tutoring is done in a supervised setting. Becoming a volunteer is a lengthy process, as a background check is performed by the State of Illinois, as well as fingerprinting, and a drug screening. Upon clearance, fifteen hours of training are provided. Tutors must be over 21 years of age. Tutoring hours are 9 a.m. - 3 p.m. Monday - Friday. Tutoring is also done on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings between 6:30 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. For more details contact Melissa Auer at Literacy Volunteers of Illinois: mauer@lvillinois.org.
