Lend-A-Hand Launches Tutoring Program at CBA


A student from the Montessori School of Englewood enjoys reading a book.

Lawyers Lend-A-Hand is launching its inaugural tutoring program here at the Chicago Bar Association!

We will be partnering with the Montessori School of Englewood (MSE) to offer Lend-A-Hand Tutoring at the CBA in October 2016. MSE students will be bused from their school in Englewood to the Chicago Bar Association for tutoring from 5:30 to 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday evenings. The program will have a focus on literacy and language arts.

The students from MSE struggle academically, with only four percent meeting state educational standards. Englewood is also one of the most impoverished neighborhoods in the city, with more than 40 percent of residents living below the poverty level. In recent years, Englewood has also developed a reputation as one of the most dangerous communities in the city, and currently has more homicides than any other neighborhood in Chicago.

We are looking for volunteers to tutor our students. If you would like to get involved with Lend-A-Hand Tutoring or any of LLAH’s 13 partner programs, please click this button, and we will contact you with volunteer opportunities through Lawyers Lend-A-Hand to Youth.
