Mission Statement

The mission of GECRC is to help children from low-income families acquire the necessary skills in academics and social interaction to move successfully through grades K-12 and into adulthood. We do this by providing no-cost after-school and summer programs which emphasize literacy and community involvement, using the talents of teachers, volunteer tutors, adult caregivers and a variety of local support services.

Description

The Glen Ellyn Children's Resource Center (GECRC) provides cost free academic support to low income children in Glen Ellyn. Participation is open to all students who attend Districts 41 or 89 schools and meet low income and academic risk guidelines.

To advance our mission and improve student outcomes, we are looking for dedicated volunteers to tutor our GECRC students one-on-one.These students are ready to learn; you can make an impact in a very profound way.

We offer several convenient tutoring locations and times:

  • Abraham Lincoln Elementary School tutoring takes place on Monday-Thursday from 4:30-5:30. (380 Greenfield Ave Glen Ellyn)

  • Churchill Elementary School tutoring takes place on Monday-Thursday from 4:30-5:30. (240 Geneva Rd, Glen Ellyn, IL 60137)

  • Hadley Junior High School tutoring takes place on Monday-Thursday from 3:30-4:40. (240 Hawthorne Blvd, Glen Ellyn)

Very Fun! The children enjoy being read to and have someone to play games with.
Engage your employees, consumers, or students! VolunteerMatch provides the tools that make community involvement easy.
