Non-Profit of the Year!
The Glen Ellyn Children's Resource Center was thrilled to win "Non-Profit of the Year" in its 20th Anniversary Celebration year at the 58th Annual Glen Ellyn Community Awards. We were so honored to be nominated alongside so many other incredible non-profits in our community, and then to win was just the cherry on top of our 20th anniversary year. Thank you to our board, our staff, our volunteers and our donors for making GECRC the 2021 Non-Profit of the Year!
What's happening at GECRC
GECRC Expansion to Glen Crest Middle School
Glen Ellyn Children’s Resource Center (GECRC) and CCSD89 (D89) have partnered to open a new GECRC site in D89. Objectives are to enroll 40 low-income ELL (English Language Learner) middle school students, who are currently deemed at academic risk. Through participation in the GECRC after school tutoring and mentorship program, students will improve their academic skills, while finding the social and emotional support needed for academic readiness and success.Read full article >
