Inspired Youth enriches the academic lives and creative talents of students in Chicago’s Uptown, Edgewater, and Rogers Park neighborhoods through weekly tutoring during the school year, a summer music program, and a year-round choir. Our goal is to support and mentor students in developing the confidence and skills needed to succeed in school and life. This program is free to students from all backgrounds.
The Inspired Youth Tutoring Program helps elementary through high school students with school homework and extra reading, writing, and arithmetic during the academic year. Most of the children in the program attend Goudy Elementary School. Some of the children are referred by teachers at Goudy, but most hear about the program from friends.
Many students from Goudy or the surrounding schools speak English as a second language or have recently found a home in the United States and settled in Chicago. We develop the children’s basic reading and math skills, supplement their classroom activities, and try to help create a safe community.
