Neighborhood Schools Program

Chicago, IL

Overview

The mission of the Neighborhood Schools Program is to engage the community in impactful ways, mostly by facilitating partnerships between University of Chicago students and our local schools to help them strengthen their ability to meet the needs of schoolchildren on the South Side.

University of Chicago students gain valuable skills through their NSP placements while enriching their own understanding of how the urban education system functions. In the course of their work with our partner sites, they become integral members of the community in the schools and classrooms, and they serve as near-peer mentors and role models for younger students. NSP is a key support system for local schools and other institutions that support the general citizenry, providing tutoring to school children, teaching assistance to public school teachers, and administrative support to community organizations.
