From the web site: "Chicago Lights Tutoring encourages 400 students living in under-resourced neighborhoods to graduate from high school and pursue higher education and meaningful careers. We match each first through twelfth grader with one caring adult tutor/mentor and provide them with innovative educational, arts, and enrichment resources that promote long-term academic and social success.

Children in grades one through twelve—mostly from Chicago’s Near North, Near West, and Austin/Lawndale neighborhoods—come to Tutoring for weekly one-to-one tutoring sessions with volunteer tutor/mentors. In addition, the program offers healthy meals, creative enrichment classes, literacy activities, career development opportunities, access to technology, high school scholarships, college preparedness, and art and digital music instruction." Founded in 1965, this is one of the oldest, volunteer-based tutor/mentor programs in Chicago.
