Involved and Empowered
Our goal is to prepare children for Kindergarten success while providing parents with the tools necessary to be empowered and equal partners in the educational process. We are able to achieve this goal through partnerships with Rowe Elementary School, Dominican University, Chicago Public Library, the EAT.MOVE.SAVE Program at the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the Erikson Institute Early Math Collaborative.
We welcome and encourage parents to volunteer their time to help out with activities at our center. Volunteering is a great opportunity to invest in your child’s education while serving others in the community. Here are just a few ways that parents can volunteer and get involved:
Parent Education Workshops
Northwestern Settlement offers a variety of resources to our scholars and their families, including:
Provides food and other essential household items.
Individual Family Wellness Consultations
Identify wellness needs and form a plan for meeting them with Bilingual Consulting Services Incorporated.
Provide day-long care and enrichment for children.
Refers families to other services, provides holiday assistance, and more.
Cradles to Crayons
Provides clothing and other essential items for children in low income situations.
Please contact our family worker, Ms. Carmen, for more information about resources available to families.
