Chicago Lights Tutoring runs Monday-Thursday from 6:00pm-7:30pm from October–May. The program provides academic and mentoring support to 400 children in 1st -12th grades. At the program, students are offered dinner, arts and enrichment classes, access to a computer lab, a library, career development classes, literacy programs and the attention of a caring adult.
They provide one hour of programming to roughly 20 public libraries across Chicago during the months of July and August. Our programming involves playing a giant word game that exercises spelling, grammar, math skills, and soft skills, like teamwork. Additionally we have Math, Spanish, and ASL games to teach other skills.
