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.
