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 needs 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.

Results

Every dollar we raise translates to measurable results that support our goal of preparing underprivileged youth to succeed in high school academically, emotionally, and socially.

  • 71% of students achieved a “C” average or higher
  • 87% demonstrated satisfactory school attendance
  • 80% met SEL standards
  • 94% reported trusting their tutors
