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-needs population wtih 72% 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 recruits dedicated community members to provide homework help at least once per week from September through March. Training is provided. Applicants must be willing to undergo a background check.
