About

EVYP offers comprehensive college access programming to first generation college-bound students. We are a vibrant community of young minds and mentors. The environment is fun, relaxed, and informal. Tutors assist with homework, help students develop study strategies, and grow confidence through mentorship.

Our community tutoring program serves students in 5th-9th grade. We are looking for an ESL tutor or someone who is bilingual in English and Spanish to help some of our students improve their English speaking skills. Tutors should be comfortable enough in Spanish to communicate in everyday terms. This is a good opportunity for tutors who are learning Spanish and would like more opportunities to practice.

Volunteers commit an hour weekly on Mondays from 6:30-7:30 pm for the academic year. Tutoring does not take place during holidays or non-CPS attendance days (with the exception of teacher strike). Tutors should have received at least a 4-year degree or in the process of pursuing one currently.

If you are interested, please submit an application at www.evyp.org/volunteer or email Jenn, our Program Coordinator if you have any questions at jromero@evyp.org.
