Notre Dame-AmeriCorps, believes that education is the fundamental tool in the struggle of the poor for human dignity, self-esteem, and self-determination. We seek to build community among our members, as well as the people with whom we work by reaching out across culture and class. We are committed to helping people help themselves. Our goal is to promote and encourage education, community empowerment, leadership development and multicultural harmony in hopes of producing greater unity, less violence, and better-informed citizens in our communities.
Through education and one-on-one support, Chicago Notre Dame - AmeriCorps members strive to empower individuals facing economic hardship. Members serve as tutors, teacher's aides, mentors, ESL teachers, manage after school and resource centers, and assist clients at a homeless shelter.
