Make a difference

Every Tuesday, I get the privilege of hanging out with Brandon. He’s a student who is really smart, likes to read, and is good at math. We talk about basketball, football, video games, and girls. Not much different than my friends. Oh yeah, he’s 12 years old.

I’m a tutor with the Partners in Education program at Fourth Presbyterian Church. While there are currently about 400 others like me, there are still a few students who don’t have tutors. That’s where you come in.

The tutoring program is looking for tutors for either Tuesday or Thursday night. This is no task to be taken lightly, as choosing to tutor a kid means that you make a commitment for at least this academic year. Some tutors have been with the same kid for multiple years.

The students are from the Cabrini-Green and Henry Horner neighborhoods, and have all signed up voluntarily. They are in every grade range from 1st-12th. You only have to give 90 minutes of your week with these kids. They need it.

If you’re interested, there will be an informational meeting on Wednesday, October 26th at 7:30PM at Fourth Presbyterian Church (at Chicago and Chesnut). If you’re interested, please drop me an email at and I will put you in contact with the person in charge.

Please, help out.
