2014-2015 Chase Park Successes!

Community Building Tutors-Chicago is a non-profit organization that is dedicated to providing free tutoring and a strong character education program to students in the Chase Park community. Once a week, about 20 elementary students from the community have one hour of support with completing their homework assignments, and one hour of our character education curriculum. The students have the chance to participate in activities and discuss what character traits are important to being a positive member of a community, and how as a young community member they can contribute. Our site coordinator and tutors are all members of the Chicago community and exemplify the characteristics of good community members; they function as mentors and role models as well as tutors. We had a great 2014-2015 academic year due to our improved structure and curriculum, and we are already looking forward to and planning a strong 2015-2016 academic year.
