Primary ServicesOur primary services are after-school literacy programs for children grades K-8 who meet eligibility guidelines. These programs operate daily during the school year from 3:25-5:30 pm and in the summer. The curriculum is designed and administered by our professional program director and implemented with the assistance of paid staff and community volunteers. Progress is evaluated by a combination of assessment tools including district MAP testing, competency logs, and communications with each child’s public school teacher. Homework assistance and a nutritious snack are also provided.
EligibilityThe center serves residents of incorporated and unincorporated Glen Ellyn and surrounding communities within Glen Ellyn School District 41 and 89 boundaries. Participation is open to all children who reside in this service area and who meet low-income and academic risk guidelines.
CollaborationWe supplement our core literacy services through collaborations with other community service providers to offer children a variety of cultural adaption, enrichment and relational learning opportunities and to help parents/caregivers support their children’s educational and social development.
Our elementary program takes place daily at Abraham Lincoln Elementary School and Churchill Elementary School. Students are paired with their tutors for a one-on-one learning experience. Working closely with the teachers, we aim to provide the students with support for their classroom activities.
