New Horizon Mentorship Program
Are you interested in helping combat disengagement and dropout rates among youth who may be from undeserved communities? Become a New Horizons Mentor and do just that! New Horizon Mentors are matched with a 6th, 7th or 8th grade student to help them connect to their schoolwork, motivate, and increase the students’ performance in school. You will meet with your student at the Gads Hill Center in the Pilsen neighborhood (right off the pink line), once per week for two hours at a time. The New Horizon Mentorship program will not only look great on your resume, but you will be positively impacting the community by providing social-emotional and academic support to students who need it.
Spark Mentorship Program
The Spark program and their volunteers work to keep our 7th and 8th grade youth in school and engaged in class. By volunteering only two hours, once a week, you will be matched with a student at the Roosevelt University campus you will help these students reach the tremendous potential they are capable of. This opportunity will be a great resume booster as well as being a positive influence on society!
