Interested in tutoring a child in reading? Opportunities will be available on Tuesdays beginning in February through the Mansfield Institute for Social Justice and Transformation (MISJT), which is partnering with a community organization in order to provide educational support to fourth and fifth graders from a southwest-side Chicago elementary school.
The children, who need mentors as well as positive support in order to be successful in college and adulthood, will be at the Chicago Campus on Tuesdays (instead of on Wednesdays as initially reported) beginning next month. Members of the Roosevelt community, including faculty, administrators and students, are invited to join us for this worthwhile experience.
Volunteers will work one-on-one with a child during tutoring sessions that will take place from 3:30 to 4:30 p.m.
The first tutoring session will take place on Wednesday, Feb. 13 at 3:30 p.m. in room 418 of the Wabash building. Prior to this date, you will need to attend one of the two training sessions either on Monday, Jan. 28 from noon to 1 p.m. or, Tuesday, Jan. 29 from 5-6 p.m. The training sessions will be in Room 1015 of the Wabash Building.
