CHiL Afterschool Tutoring

Founded to prevent at risk youth from joining gangs, CHiL facilitates successful transitions to high school through volunteer-based tutoring. The afterschool program bolsters improved grade performance and social and emotional learning at the middle schools in Wheeling Township’s Community Consolidated School District 21—Cooper, Holmes, and London. CHiL serves a high-need population with 76% of the students qualifying for free or reduced-price lunch. In addition, 44% of the students served by the program are English language learners.

CHiL is recruiting dedicated community members to provide homework help from September through March.
