JOIN OUR MOVEMENT

OF REFUGEE EMPOWERMENT!

Opportunities Open for Application:

 

We currently do not have any opportunities open for the fall session. Please keep an eye out for winter session opportunities!

In-Person Tutoring

In-Person tutors must commit to tutoring for at least four hours per week at our empowerment center in the West Ridge neighborhood of Chicago. All in-person tutors must make a 100 hour commitment. So, for example, if you are tutoring 4 hours per week, you would need to commit to tutoring for at least 25 weeks, and if you are tutoring 10 hours per week, you would need to commit to tutoring for at least 10 weeks. All in-person tutors must undergo a background check, and there are no age restrictions for in-person tutors.

*We will be closed for Labor Day, Indigenous Peoples' Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving, and the day after Thanksgiving.

 

Virtual Tutoring 

 

Virtual tutors must commit to tutoring for at least one hour every weekday via Zoom, Monday-Friday, from August 29 to Dec 23. Virtual tutors must have reliable access to wifi and a computer/iPad and must undergo a background check. All new virtual tutors must be age 18 or above.
