OUR MISSION

Chicago Teen Mentors’ goal is to provide free educational support for CPS students in need and those who struggle with remote learning. CTM is run entirely by driven CPS high-schoolers wanting to give back to children in the same school system that supported us. Our dedicated, compassionate tutors offer free 1-on-1 tutoring over Zoom in math and reading, exclusively for 3rd to 10th grade CPS students.

ABOUT

This program was started as a club at Whitney Young High School. We saw a common need for educational support at elementary schools in our communities. We wanted to meet this need by offering after-school tutoring services. Prior to schools closing, we had over 20 members tutoring in-person, working closely with three CPS elementary schools. When schools transitioned to remote learning, we moved to free Zoom tutoring in reading and math. Our volunteers tutor 1-on-1, Monday-Saturday at 4:00-5:00 PM and 7:00-8:00 PM. Sign up for our spring session is now open!

GET PAIRED WITH A TUTOR

Please fill out a separate form for each of your children. If free tutoring is available through your school, please sign up there first. We would like to make tutoring available to those that do not have access through school.
