Inspired Youth provides one-on-one tutoring/mentoring to low-income public school students on Chicago’s North Side. Altogether we serve around 100 youth ages 5-18. With educated adults or high school students as tutors, we focus on school homework and extra reading, writing, arithmetic which the program provides. The goal is to give students the academic skills and emotional foundation to graduate from high school, go to college, and become productive citizens.
The Tutoring Program takes place at the Bezazian Branch of the Chicago Public Library, 1226 W. Ainslie, between the Argyle and Lawrence el-stops, just west of Broadway.
Volunteer tutors are needed Wednesday, 3:30-5pm, and Thursday, 3:30-5pm, when we work with 1st through 4th graders. We also need volunteers on Mondays, 6:30-7:50pm, when we work with 5th through 8th graders and a few high school students.
