Some Great News!
The Illinois Prairie Community Foundation has awarded Western Avenue Community Center with a $3,000 grant to help pay for staff time to train tutors in the After School Program. The support comes from the Ruth Carey Education Endowment Fund and will support the training of up to 80 volunteer tutors per semester during the 2017/18 school year! These tutors will help kindergarten through 6th grade students achieve academic progress through daily reading, homework help and mentoring. Thank you to IPCF and its supporters for the generous grant to our program!
