Clifford Court Lunch Program - Elgin
Bring your summer fun along while you partner with us, Fox Valley Christian Action and Northern Illinois Food Bank to provide prepared, nutritional summer lunches to kids at the Clifford Court public housing complex in Elgin, IL on 691 Clifford Court.Clifford Court Tutoring Program - Elgin
Partner with us and the school district in offering homework assistance to kids at the Clifford Court public housing complex in Elgin. The program begins September 15 and runs Tuesdays through Thursdays 2:30-4:30pm throughout the school year, except during school vacations. Training will be provided. Volunteer tutors will be required to go through a background check. Clifford Court address: 583 Owasco Court Apt. A. Contact Us for questions or to volunteer.
Please note that because the tutoring program is supported and run by the U46 school district that we must honor the separation of church and state and focus primarily on tutoring and building a friendship. However, you are encouraged to build relationships in such a way that would foster opportunities to invite the child to read at the library with you, go to the park, come to church with you, etc. In these environments, you should feel free to share Christ openly.
Committed to extending hospitality, friendship, and practical care to internationals in the DeKalb/Sycamore area. Serving opportunities include assisting students as they settle in at the start of the school year, providing food for events, drivers to and from the Chicago airports, train station, and to medical and dental appointments for students and their families.
