The 2018 hurricane season has been extraordinarily active in parts of the U.S., with Hurricane Florence currently impacting millions in the Carolinas. As this natural disaster unfolds, the staff here at VolunteerMatch is doing its part to ensure that, if you are in an affected community, you are prepared and safe. And if you are looking to help with disaster relief efforts, you know about the most effective ways to contribute.
Horizons for Youth is a Chicago community committed to helping children in low-income families recognize and achieve their full potential.
In partnership with dedicated families, we provide need-based scholarships, one-on-one mentoring, and enrichment programs. We are the only organization in Chicago offering this unique combination at the elementary through college level. For more information, please visit: www.horizons-for-youth.org
The Tutoring Program helps each student reach their full potential through one-on-one tutoring with a student. Tutors will meet for one hour per week with their student to work on a specified subject or area of needed improvement. We ask tutors to fill out a survey detailing their comfort level in certain subjects and grades, as well as their preferences to give tutors the most worthwhile volunteer experience possible.
Tutors must be able to commit a full semester (or school year) with their student to ensure stability.
Volunteers must pass reference & background checks.
