At the University of Chicago Office of Multicultural Student Affairs, we want students to have access to academic and cultural resources, but to also have opportunities independent of the classroom and student life. Thus, the following is a list of opportunities where students can go to search for funding, enrich their summers or find work after graduation.

Volunteer Opportunity with Literacy Chicago

Literacy Chicago, Chicago's oldest adult literacy program is seeking volunteers for their Adult Literacy, ESL and GED programs. The main office is located in the Loop (17 N. State) and there are opportunities to volunteer at that site or at several off-site programs located all over the city, including the Woodlawn neighborhood. One can tutor one-on-one, assist with classes and even develop and facilitate a reading discussion group. The next Volunteer Training Sessions will take place on March 3rd and 10th from 900am to 300pm; the cost is $50 but scholarships are available.

This is a great way to give back for just a few hours a week and there are hundreds of adults who want to learn to read or earn their GED so they can improve the quality of their lives. The organization is a wonderful place to volunteer as well and they are totally open to student participation.
