Program Update

The holidays are over and it’s now 2018 which means it’s time for our HOPES After- School program, Literacy Mentors, and Parent Program to resume. We are looking forward to our returning enrichment partners (Mad Science, Code Play Learn, and Hopes, Harmony and Healing), as well as our new enrichment partners, The Poetry Foundation and Qyjon Clark (social emotional learning).

We would like to thank Code, Play, Learn for sponsoring a field trip for our students over the winter break. The children got to participate in one of many day camps that Code, Play, Learn provides. Students will also be going to the John Hancock building later this month which could not be possible without the support of 360 Chicago. Our sponsors have truly made a difference in providing our students with new experiences.

This semester, we would also like to welcome our new Americorps members: Esperanza Salgado and Erin White. We also would like to welcome our new site coordinator, Allison. She will be at our new site in North Lawndale.

Sending out a huge thank you to our staff, who work so hard to provide incredible support to our students. We would like to continue thanking  our volunteers, new and returning, for giving their time to our program and to our kids.
