We have a number of opportunities available to fit a variety of interests, whether for an individual or group. Past activities have included, helping with after-school programming, tutoring and homework assistance, running an arts/crafts activity, assisting teens with writing college essays and ACT preparation, painting a classroom, building a garden, etc.
This is a great option for volunteers interested in committing to a recurring volunteering shift for a specified duration of time in our after-school programs (2:30 – 8 p.m., Monday – Friday). Center-based volunteer opportunities include: tutoring, co-facilitating a group, recreational activities, career and college-readiness activities, or just helping out wherever you are needed.
These volunteers provide educational and social support at our 21st Century Community Learning Centers. Tutors and Homework Assistants are needed to help youth in grades K-12 in various subject areas after school, Monday – Thursday, from 2:30 – 6:30 p.m. CYC is also always looking for volunteers with special talents or skills. Locations vary, but may include: South Loop, Bridgeport, Back of the Yards, Auburn/Gresham, North Lawndale, Bronzeville, and South Shore.
