Tutor a CPS student at DePaul with WITS (Working in the Schools)!

English students, faculty, and staff:

Looking to spread literacy? Seeking a convenient way to give your mind and time to help others? Looking for a volunteering opportunity related to your work as an English major? Are you interested in tutoring a CPS elementary school student? For the last few years, the DePaul English Dept. has partnered with the nonprofit WITS (Working in the Schools).

The idea is that English faculty, staff, and students become mentors for 4th-6th grade students from a Chicago Public School that is 90% low-income. Often, two people share a single CPS student; if sharing, you’d meet with that student for an hour every other week—you and the student would take turns reading to each other and then you’d help the student with his or her homework. WITS would bus the students to Arts & Letters on Thursdays from 3:30-4:30. It would start October 15th. If you were to share a student, you would meet with your mentee for a total of 14 sessions throughout the year.

Check out a WITS promotional video here.

There is a training session next Thursday, October 1st, from 3:30-4:30. If you’re interested, please email Matt Spear at matts@witschicago.org; everyone will meet in the foyer on the 1st level of Arts & Letters and then go to an assigned room.
